Henry V—The King Victorious
Lecture no. 18 from the course: William Shakespeare: Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies
Taught by Professor Peter Saccio | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses
The contemporary response to Henry V has both continued an earlier celebratory tradition and paired it with a modern distrust of war and politicians. The play offers some support for both of these opposed interpretations, but such a binary view is too simple.
