    1 thought on “Henry IV, Parts I & II

    1. I marvel at how smoothly this play enhance the cyclical nature of history, how the succession of kings, of fathers and sons, mimics a pattern of fall and redemption that is repeated in Richard II, Henry IV, and Henry V, and accordingly, the evolution of styles echoes this pattern of unrestrained chaos, reestablished order and promised posterity.In Henry IV, part one, there is an unmistakable jesting tone in Mr John Falstaff s famous soliloquies, both sage and villain, which are characterized by [...]

    2. Starring the original frat brother, Prince Hal the slumming trust fund kid soon to turn prodigal son this play reads like some great lost Scorsese mob picture Whether through insight or just proximate empathy, Shakespeare reveals the English nobility for the relentlessly combative, barely beyond the Huns people they really were For all the Bardolaters fascination with Falstaff who, according to Mark Van Doren, understands everything and so is never serious now there s a profound statement , it i [...]

    3. I love this whole series of historical plays by William Shakespeare, especially through Henry V I am still reading Henry IV, Part 2 but it is hard to find the right edition of a play on.

    4. There s matter in these sighs, these profound heaves You must translate tis fit we understand them Hamlet, 4.1.1 2

    5. La lunghezza dell Enrico IV, due parti, cinque atti ciascuna, non dovuta tanto alla Storia in s , particolarmente semplice Enrico IV, dopo aver usurpato Riccardo II, affronta dei nuovi moti di ribellione, mentre il figlio, Harry, passa da ubriacone a degno erede al trono , quanto pi ai mille rivoli in cui si snoda In particolare, l imponenza dell Enrico IV risiede nella sua duplicit Da una parte vi la messa in scena storica e dall altra vi Falstaff e la sua commedia umana.Quando si dice che comm [...]

    6. Part 1 I would like to say i did or didn t enjoy the plot but i think, in Shakespeare, you have the book than once From what i understood, though, i didn t like too much of it Too many characters The only one that caught my attention was Falstaff and his comedic interventions.Part 2 Same problem as the 1st Part, although i think that you can understand this Part s plot better than the 1st Part Still, i liked the attitude Hal took at the end of the book and Falstaff, once again, made my reading [...]

    7. Henry IV, Part 1This was a surprising play It started out rather boring for me, but towards the 4th and 5th acts, it got a lot better I suppose this was due to the need for exposition before action I m glad I was required to read this for school, otherwise I would never have read it This was an interesting view of British royalty vs rebels I loved Hotspur

    8. Poor format false advertising No free audiobook The advertised free audio book simply takes you to audible sign up Not free WITH purchase Very unhappy with this version

    9. King Henry IV part 1 was simultaneously actually quite enjoyable to read and also really weird For starters, it was just freaking hilarious, like I couldn t take it seriously when the tavern scenes came on There were, however, a few great quotes among the um plain weird ones Um, yeah, it was a different side of Shakespeare that I thoroughly enjoyed in all its hilarious weirdness For example Death hath not struck so fat a deer today Hal view spoiler at a fake dead Falstaff hide spoiler Translatio [...]

    10. In part 1, a play in itself, Henry has taken the throne but is uneasy since he usurped it from Richard II He wants to go on crusade to unify his kingdom but has too much trouble with rebels on his borders Scotland and Wales and within from the Percy family and its firebrand son Hotspur His own son, Harry, who will be Henry V, is carousing with Falstaff, which troubles him greatly.But when battle is joined against the rebels, Harry shows his stuff and kills Hotspur Falstaff also shows his stuff, [...]

    11. This is one of the historical fiction play I ve read by Shakespeare, it s fast, funny, historical and portrays the complicated father son relationship with much psychological depth There are plenty of characters perfectly suit for dramatic and comic effect which makes the play well rounded With no fear Shakespeare guide, it helped me understand the old English Overtime, I was compelled to read the original play and made my own interpretation and understanding of the text Really pleased I made my [...]

    12. The story of the relationship between Hal Henry V and Falstaff Dr Bloom argues persuasively that Falstaff is one the most fully realized characters in English literature The other is Hamlet The interplay between Hal and Falstaff is the stuff of legends It is indeed presumptuous to try to judge the plays One can only begin to understand the nature of the human It bears rereading and much thought One feels that one has been in the presence of greatness.

    13. In keeping with my current obsession with the Wars of the Roses, I read these 2 plays for some Elizabethan era insight Henry V is the real star of these two plays, not surprisingly, since he was still fondly remembered in Shakespeares time for his amazing victory at Agincourt I love Falstaff , I guess everyone does, and found these very informative and enjoyable Love the bard

    14. Falstaff has to be greatest character of all time Harold Bloom understands this and accompanies a fuller understanding as he becomes your portly guide into the world of Fasltaff A world where we all need to find and embrace our inner characters Even if we are the worst scum in the world then BE the worst scum in the world but do it with such a panache that it looks marvelous.

    15. I LOVED how they had the book formatted I could read Shakespeare the way it would be written nowadays I mean, I still like reading old fashioned Shakespeare, but it was interesting for me to try it out that way Less work for the brain So for those of you anti shakespeare book lovers, try this out

    16. Jak jsem star , t m v c m m r da Shakespeara A hlavn tedy historick hry, i kdy to v literatu e bylo to, co profesorka zm nila, aby n m pak mohla zbytek hodiny zbyte n dopodrobna rozeb rat Hamleta Ale tohle je tak neskute n dobr , vtipn i smutn z rove.

    17. Very good book The No Fear Shakespeare series makes it much easier to read and understand his plays I would never have guessed part two was so dirty without the translation.

    18. Not my thing at all I just couldn t get into the story and the characters were just not fun to read about.
