What is the Text?

‘Henry V’ by William Shakespeare

Text Overview

Henry V is a historical play, probably written around 1599. It covers events during the Hundred Years' War, immediately before and after the Battle of Agincourt (1415).

Soon after he becomes king, Henry V is considering making a claim to rule France as well as England. He asks the Archbishop of Canterbury about how strong his claim is, but it's when the dauphin sends Henry an insulting message that he makes up his mind and decides to invade France. The English soldiers (about 6000) are in poor condition - disheartened by sickness and foul weather. They begin to retreat, but Henry rejects the French Herald's offer of ransom, and the two armies prepare to fight. The evening before the battle, Henry tours the camp in disguise, finding out what his men think. It leads him to consider the heavy responsibilities of kingship. In the French camp (with about 30 000 - 50 000 soldiers), confidence is high. As battle begins, Henry rallies his troops and places them all in God's hands. Against all odds an English victory is confirmed, with miraculously small losses. Find out more how this was made possible and what amazing insights we can extract about exceptional leadership and motivation.
