Henry V is indeed the grand finale of Shakespeare s second historical tetralogy right after Henry IV Part 2 So here exit Falstaff whose death is recounted by Mistress uickly in the first act and we are now in the presence of a conuering and warlike Harry who is like chalk and cheese when compared with his former self the dissolute Prince Hal A few of Falstaff and Hal s companions remain however on the battlefield and provide some colourful moments Henry V is an incredibly dynamic play performed at the very opening of the Globe this wooden O but feels in retrospect as if it had been written for the big screen the action leaps in space from one act to the next from London to Southampton to Harfleur to Paris to Agincourt back to England and back again to France So much so that Shakespeare felt the need to add a Chorus who like the rolling billboards at the beginning of each Star Wars episode provides some context and clarity to a possibly inattentive or disoriented audience In fact Shakespeare boldly tramples all the rules of Aristotle s Poetics underfoot just as Harry successfully rides roughshod over all rules of military strategyThen there is this effervescence of languages as the story of Henry V spans across most of Europe Scotland Jamy Ireland MacMorris Wales Fluellen England the court of Henry V France the court of Charles VI Bavaria and Milan the ueen of France Burgundy the Duke Philip the Good The blending of accents and idioms and the misunderstandings that follow are absolutely toe curling and uite often uproarious I am guessing that had Shakespeare lived in our time he most probably would have drawn a great tragicomedy out of the present Brexit situationFinally unlike most of Shakespeare s Histories which in essence are tragedies Henry V is fundamentally an epic poem More than in any other play there are moments in it of absolutely breathtaking heroic flight There is the gripping scene before the walls of Harfleur of course Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit To his full height III1 Above all there is the famous St Crispin s Day speech just before the battlefield at Agincourt And Crispin Crispian shall ne er go by From this day to the ending of the world IV3 This text is indeed shorter but entirely on the level in my opinion of even the Bhagavad Gita another divine address ahead of an epic battle Apparently this sort of eve of battle speech later became a prereuisite in epic stories especially in movies from Chaplin s Great Dictator to The Return of the King Braveheart Gladiator 300 The Deathly Hallows Game of Thrones and many others not to mention the great military and political speeches recorded throughout recent history from Winston Churchill to Charles de Gaulle to JFK Edit Just watched the cinematic adaptation of this play within the Hollow Crown series with Tom Hiddleston best known as Loki in the Avengers movies as the title role His performance is remarkable he delivers the Azincourt locker room speech in the gentlest simplest almost hopeless manner which makes it a real tear jerker Loved it Edit 2 Just watched The King the epic movie with Thimot e Chalamet recently released on Netflix The film covers the period between Hotspur s rebellion see King Henry IV Part 1 in Shakespeare and the Treaty of Troyes in Shakespeare s Henry V Director David Mich d distances himself uite a bit from Shakespeare s play in the plot case in point Falstaff is one of Henry s major strategists at Agincourt in the movie whereas he was already long dead in Shakespeare s play The tone is uite different as well when Henry V is for the most part a heroic play The King feels like a dark conspiracy drama Chalamet as a gloomy English King and Pattinson as a ridiculous French Dauphin are both outstanding The visual depiction of the battle of Agincourt is a major highlight the tactics are extremely well laid out and the mayhem and horrific aspects of hand to hand battle and stampede in the bog a sort of super gritty and bloody rugby scrum are indeed awe inspiring
