Lecture no. 12 from the course: How to Read and Understand Shakespeare

The Drama of Ideas in Henry V

Taught by Professor Marc C. Conner | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

In plumbing the riches of one of Shakespeare’s greatest history plays, assess Henry’s ambiguous relation to God as he manipulates faith and religion to his political ends. Grasp also how Henry employs the dynamics of theater, brilliantly “staging” each of his critical actions, and how he defeats the expectations of his French foes.
