Henry V (Annotated with Biography and Critical Essay)

As an historical play, Henry V as a narrative is a continuation of Henry IV Part I and II, as Henry V became the English king after the death of his father Henry IV in 1413. Henry V has been regarded over the centuries as Shakespeare’s most patriotic play. The English had fought the French for many years over lost and disputed French territory – and Henry’s victory at the Battle of Agincourt against strong odds built the confidence and stirred the patriotism of the English. When the play begins, France and England are avowed enemies and Henry’s advisors are urging him to claim the throne of France for himself. Since the Norman Conquest by William I in 1066, various tracts of territory in France had passed between French and English control. Louis, the heir to the French throne, and son of King Charles, sends Henry a barrel of tennis balls; a sly reference to Henry’s youth (he was twenty-six when he became king) and Henry’s reputation of being an underachiever. Henry decides he has been insulted - he must invade France. This annotated edition includes a biography and critical essay.

The Life of Henry V

An Annotated Edition of the Shakespeare Play

The Life of Henry V continues the epic story of Richard II; Henry IV, Part One; and Henry IV, Part Two. In the Life of Henry V, Prince Hal has matured and left behind the carefree days of his youth, divorcing himself from Falstaff and his ilk and assuming the leadership of England following the death of his fa-ther. He is revealed as a serious candidate for rulership, someone who has, in actuality, been preparing himself for this role. Memorable scenes in the Life of Henry V include the St. Crispin’s address, the wooing of Katherine, and those including Fluellen, who comes to represent true British loyalty. The Life of Henry V could be said to represent the apotheosis of the history plays, Shakespeare at his best in revisiting British history and elevating it to a form of national reverence.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Die Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, warum und auf welche Weise Shakespeare-Filme seit jeher eine große Anziehungskraft auf das Kinopublikum ausüben und insbesondere in den 90er Jahren eine Renaissance erfahren haben. Die Filme dieser jüngsten Entwicklung werden unter drei Perspektiven einer Analyse unterzogen: 1. Das Drehbuch: Welche verschiedenen Möglichkeiten der dramaturgischen Bearbeitung für einen Film werden hier verwirklicht bzw. wie macht man aus einem Shakespeare-Drama ein Drehbuch? 2. Die Inszenierung: Welche unterschiedlichen Stile hinsichtlich Kamera, Schnitt, Musik und Ton fügen sich auf welche Weise in ein Gesamtkonzept? 3. Die Publikumswirkung: Welche seelischen Grundprobleme werden in Shakespeares Dramen belebt und anhand welcher psychologischer Wirkungsmechanismen setzen sie sich in den Filmen um? Die vergleichende Analyse dieser drei Perspektiven macht deutlich, dass die Geschichten in Shakespeares Dramen ein reichhaltiges Angebot sowohl für eine experimentelle Bildsprache als auch für sehr individuelle inhaltliche Interpretationen machen. Die Herausarbeitung der verschiedenen Möglichkeiten einer Interaktion zwischen den modernen Filmemachern und den klassischen Dramen William Shakespeares sind der Gegenstand dieser Arbeit.

The Conscience of a King

More than just a single-minded warrior-king, Henry V comes to life in this fresh account as a gifted ruler acutely conscious of spiritual matters and his subjects’ welfare Shakespeare’s centuries-old portrayal of Henry V established the king’s reputation as a warmongering monarch, a perception that has persisted ever since. But in this exciting, thoroughly researched volume a different view of Henry emerges: a multidimensional ruler of great piety, a hands-on governor who introduced a radically new conception of England’s European role in secular and ecclesiastical affairs, a composer of music, an art patron, and a dutiful king who fully appreciated his obligations toward those he ruled. Historian Malcolm Vale draws on extensive primary archival evidence that includes many documents annotated or endorsed in Henry’s own hand. Focusing on a series of themes—the interaction between king and church, the rise of the English language as a medium of government and politics, the role of ceremony in Henry’s kingship, and more—Vale revises understandings of Henry V and his conduct of the everyday affairs of England, Normandy, and the kingdom of France.

Henry V - The Quarto (Sos)

One of a series on Shakespeare's original texts, including facsimile pages, this version of "Henry V" is claimed to be, in some ways, the most authentic version of the play that we have. Included are an introduction, notes, and a theoretical, historical and contextual critique. The original text - or First Quarto - of "Henry V", published in 1600, is missing the Chorus, a dramatic device which recent criticism has used to suggest a strikingly modern view of history and politics. These and other significant changes mean that critics can no longer assume that the play presents a distanced, ironic perspective on its own political and military action. If Elizabethan audiences saw in performance something closer to the First Folio than the 1623 Folio text, then their dramatic engagement with history was of a kind very different from that of the play's 20th-century interpreters. This new edition makes available the original text of "Henry V", in all its theatrical simplicity and historical difference.
