Example text

I’ll so offend to make offence a skill, Redeeming time when men think least I will. [Exit] Act 1 Scene 3 running scene 3 Location: the royal court Enter the King, Northumberland, Worcester, Hotspur, Sir Walter Blunt and others KING HENRY IV My blood hath been too cold and temperate , Unapt to stir at these indignities, And you have found me; for accordingly You tread upon my patience.

HONOR VERSUS INSTINCT Part I shows Prince Harry playing “truant” from “chivalry,” but returning to it when the time is ripe. Even as he proves himself on the battlefield, the critique of honor continues with Falstaff’s mock “catechism”: “Can honour set to a leg? No…Who hath it? ” Falstaff’s philosophy is a simple “give me life”: never mind about ethical and political codes of behavior. “I am not a double man,” he says to Hal, putting down the dead Hotspur, whom he has been carrying on his back.

By making Sir John fat and not calling him Oldcastle, Shakespeare raises the specter of Catholic as opposed to Protestant martyrdoms. Falstaff is Malvolio’s opposite: he stands for cakes and ale, festival and holiday, all that was anathema to Puritanism. ” If there is a proto-Protestant or embryonic Puritan in the plays, it is King Harry V, newly washed of his past, casting off his old companions, turning away England’s former self. ABOUT THE TEXT Shakespeare endures through history. He illuminates later times as well as his own.
