    I have read this play many times and although Shakespeare always shows me something new this reading gave me little insight and few surprises I was struck with two parallels however one within the play itself and one within Shakespeare's body of work First of all I appreciated the subtle parallels between the Hotspur Glendower and the Hal Falstaff scenes Each young man spends much of his time needling a self important older man who is such a windbag that the audience is almost automatically on the young man's side Hotspur whom we are inclined to respect because of his high spirits and his achievements as a warrior is so easily irritated and carries his own self regard so close to the surface that his needling of Glendower although deserved seem pointless rash and injudicious It may in fact prove fatal since Glendower fails to come to Hotspur's aid when most needed a dereliction perhaps precipitated by the younger man's abrasive heckling Conseuently although we like Hotspur at the end of the scene as much as we liked him at the beginning we respect him a good deal less Contrast with this the Hal Falstaff exchanges Hal already characterized as a wastrel punctures Falstaff's pomposity with such a controlled attack of pointed wit that we begin to admire him for his discipline at least in conversation and sense that there may be to him than appears on the surface In addition Falstaff unlike the humorless Glendower is a worthy opponent filled with wit and self awareness and the fact that Hal can than hold his own and keep his temper too suggests a self awareness a deliberately cultivated distance from his degraded surroundings that prepares us for his eventual transformation just as much as his solilouy about the sunThe other parallel between plays is closer but certainly less important Lady Percy in her attempts to gain information about the coming rebellion delivers a speech that is very much like Portia's speech to Brutus in similar circumstances Their conduct afterwards though is different Portia the stoic Roman cuts herself in the thigh to prove her ability to keep a secret but Lady Percy a hardy warrior's bride tries to break her husband's little finger and force him to talk Like I said this isn't that important but it is interesting how a great dramatist can use similar materials in support of very different effectsSpeaking overall I am once again astonished by the great command of voices that Shakespeare demonstrates in this play Hotspur Falstaff Glendower Hal and Mistress uickly all use language in very distinctive ways and even the casual conversation of the servants in the stable yard is vivid and characteristic I am also impressed with the expert and seamless blending of poetry with prose history with comedy rhetoric with witBy the time he wrote Henry IV Shakespeare could not only do it all but he knew exactly how and when to mix it up This is indisputably the work of a master

    How hard it must be to fight an enemy you admire; how hard it must be to realise your enemy is a stronger and perhaps worthy man than your son and how great it must be to realise that you are such a hypocritical fool and that your son is than you ever dreamed But first you must lament your heir to your advisors clearly a great move Yea there thou mak’st me sad and mak’st me sin In envy that my Lord Northumberland Should be the father to so blest a son— A son who is the theme of honour’s tongue Amongst a grove the very straightest plant Who is sweet Fortune’s minion and her pride— Whilst I by looking on the praise of him See riot and dishonor stain the brow Of my young Harry O that it could be proved That some night tripping fairy had exchanged In cradle clothes our children where they lay And called mine Percy his PlantagenetHenry Bolingbroke is a man with daemons He won his crown on the back of a rebellion and here he is many years later crushing a rebellion himself There’s some irony in here Shakespeare does love to point out a good hypocrite In the rebellious Hotspur King Henry clearly sees part of himself and in his son he sees a foe he vanuished many years before The ineffectual Richard II has come to haunt he him; he doesn’t want to see England fall under such negligent rule ever again So he is a man most divided The choice he makes is the only one he could make He puts his faith in his son and because of this the young Henry meets the challenge with vigour and character I’d argue he didn’t even know he possessed The young Henry Hal to his friends doesn’t take life too seriously He spends his days drinking pranking and bantering with an old knight named Sir John Fallstaff and this lead to some of the best moments of the play The two in a metatheatrical moment a mini play within a play act out a scene of King and Prince Fallstaff rather hilariously whilst pretending to be Henry IV gives young Hal some advice about his drunken friend No my good lord banish Peto banish Bardolph banish Poins but for sweet Jack Falstaff kind Jack Falstaff true Jack Falstaff valiant Jack Falstaff and therefore valiant being as he is old Jack Falstaff Banish not him thy Harry’s company Banish not him thy Harry’s company Banish plump Jack and banish all the worldThus history becomes part comedy and Shakespeare as always demonstrates how versatile a dramatist he was Language becomes a clear distinction between the high born characters and the low This is no Richard II where commoners are spouting out verse In here there is a clear distinction between who is educated and who isn’t The commoners speak in prose The lord’s in verse Young Hal can do a little bit of both He has the ability to bond with the lowborn and the high born because of this which is just a slight foreshadowing of the loyalty he will command one day A good King knows how to communicate with his subjects not just the other rulers of the land just a bit of subtlety from the bard Honour as well becomes a subject of much contention What is honour? Is it personal integrity or is it loyalty to your King and perhaps those you love Indeed honour becomes a subjective principle one that means different things to each individual For the King it is his need to protect his realm for Hotspur it is personal integrity and for Hal it is duty Fallstaff’s honour which is something easily debatable is his love for his prince His dialogue speaks otherwise but his actions though a little bit stupid felt rather devoted at points even if they were also self serving As with all of Shakespeare’s plays watching a good version really helps I like to read the play once go watch an adaption and then read the play again It just adds another level to it I did uite like this play but I much preferred Richard II The language in that play was pure poetry and I much prefer tragedy to comedy

    After Richard II this is the second episode of Shakespeare’s major Histories the events that will lead up to the Wars of the Roses This play is not so much about BolingbrokeHenry IV as it is the first of a vast trilogy on Prince HalHenry V — from Eastcheap to Azincourt The first part of Henry IV tells the events of the rebellion of the barons following the lead of young Harry Percy against the king they initially placed on the throne of England Simultaneously it is also a captivating and cheeky chiaroscuro on the low ranking people the nobodies living in a dodgy tavern at the same time as the king and nobility It is to my knowledge the first time Shakespeare includes the commoners to such a large extent into one of his history plays and it is brilliantIt is probably the endearing relationship between Prince Hal and John Falstaff at the start that makes this one of my favourite plays of William Shakespeare It is difficult to explain in rational terms what makes this odd friendship and especially Falstaff — a chronic liar drunkard and thief — one of the sweetest most memorable most human most touching characters of all literature Only a couple other friendships between two men come to mind as energetically and emotionally as these two Don uijote and Sancho Panza and maybe Tintin and Capitaine Haddock I even suspect that Falstaff directly inspired Haddock both divine drunkards and hilarious insults mongers The end of Act V when Harry pays homage to his foe Hotspur and wrongly believes his gargantuan friend dead on the battlefield — which was probably intended as a comical scene — always makes my eyes waterHowever things take a very different turn after the battle of Shrewsbury Stay tuned review to be continued in Henry IV Part 2

  5. J.L. Sutton J.L. Sutton says:

    While William Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part 1 is a different experience than Richard II it is a fantastic play The action picks up shortly after the conclusion of Richard II after Bolingbroke has deposed the now dead Richard and become King Henry It still has a serious side but this play subverts the legitimacy of the monarchy by the ways it uses language It does this most effectively by its depiction of the heir to the throne Prince Henry known as Hal and his debased and disgraced compatriot Sir John Falstaff and the juxtaposition of their comic mocking with the serious business of state Throughout the play honor is associated with the morality of leadership On that score rather than a drunk or vagabond Falstaff asserts his honor “There lives not three good men unhanged in England and one of them is fat and grows old” Falstaff Act 2 Scene 4 Hal answers playacting as his father with little sentimentality or seeming affection “That trunk of humours that bolting hutch of beastliness that swollen parcel of dropsies that huge bombard of sack that stuffed cloak bag of guts that roasted Manningtree ox with the pudding in his belly that reverend Vice that grey Iniuity that father Ruffian that Vanity in years?” Prince Henry Act 2 Scene 4 Hal’s association with Falstaff and his rag tag crew belies his own moral authority When Hal suggests banishing Falstaff Falstaff answers that this would be harmful to the prince “No my good lord banish Peto banish Bardolph banish Poins but for sweet Jack Falstaff kind Jack Falstaff true Jack Falstaff valiant Jack Falstaff and therefore valiant being as he is old Jack Falstaff banish not him thy Harry's company banish not him thy Harry's company Banish plump Jack and banish all the world” Falstaff Act 2 Scene 4 Falstaff is a teacher or mentor of sorts but he also represents the recklessness of Hal’s youth Prince Hal is capable of holding court over the debauched in the seedier sides of London but is he capable of assuming his rightful place as the king of England? This is one of Shakespeare’s great plays

  6. Michael Finocchiaro Michael Finocchiaro says:

    The introduction of the old lecherous Oldcastle later renamed Falstaff due to complaints from the real Oldcastle family was a real pleasure here He offered a comedic respite to the bloodshed and politic intrigues which the Bard was describing from the later years of Henry IV's reign after his coup d’etat of Richard II One of the interesting aspects was the conflict between Henry IV and his son Hal the future Henry V At one point the father wishes that Hotspur of the rival camp was actually his son Meanwhile Hal loves to mess around with FalstaffThe thieves have bound the true men Now could thou and I rob the thieves and go merrily to London it would be argument for a week laughter for a month and a good jest forever Henry IV Part 1 Act 2 scene iiHowever near the end Hal saves his father's life on his road to redemption which completes in Henry IV Part 2 and they are reconciledStay and breathe awhileThou hast redeemed thy lost opinionAnd showed thou mak'st some tender of my lifeIn this fair rescue thou hast brought to meHenry IV Part 1 Act 5 scene ivOverall the speeches were for me a bit less memorable than those in Shakespeare's play of Richard II and yet the piece is full of action Thoroughly enjoyable but go I now onwards hence Henry IV Part II my ignoble soul awaitsHighly recommended The Hollow Crown S01E02 with Tom Hiddleston as Hal and Joe Anderson as Hotspur was really good The battle of Shrewsbury was well shot The FalstaffOldstone plot provides comic relief as Simon Russell Beale's protrayal is both pathetic and moving at times I never had all that much affinity for the old lecher but it sets up the drama in Henry IV Part 2 to see Hal and Falstaff imitating Henry IV and the Hal in the barroom scene

  7. Darwin8u Darwin8u says:

    “O while you live tell truth and shame the Devil” ― William Shakespeare King Henry IV Part 1FalstaffYes I knew who he was But until this year my exposure to Falstaff was mainly second hand through books that spoke of him I hadn't touched any of Shakespeare's histories I'm not counting Julius Caesar etc as a history and so was surprised at just how much I liked this character There are plays where the character and the play are eually matched Othello Hamlet etc but there are those plays where the character seems to float beyond the play Henry IV Part I seems like one of those The play was great I enjoyed it But every time Falstaff arrived it seemed to jump up a level It was certainly not a play where Falstaff played a central role Obviously Henry Prince of Wales plays that part and he is fascinating himself but Falstaff just dervishes around the play making everything better Breathing color and dynamics into every scene he is a part of And he doesn't do it through and other worldliness He does it through his humanity his base motives and his complicated affections There is no doubt that Henry loves Falstaff and that Falstaff loves Henry but it is also clear that they are both using each other and KNOW the other is using them It is perfectAnd the lines Some of Shakespeare's great lines and great musings jump energetically from Falstaff's lips Well ’tis no matter; honour pricks me on Yea but how if honour prick me off when I come on? How then? Can honour set to a leg? No Or an arm? No Or take away the grief of a wound? No Honour hath no skill in surgery then? No What is honour? A word What is in that word “honour”? What is that “honour”? Air A trim reckoning Who hath it? He that died o’ Wednesday Doth he feel it? No Doth he hear it? No ’Tis insensible then? Yea to the dead But will it not live with the living? No Why? Detraction will not suffer it Therefore I’ll none of it Honour is a mere scutcheon And so ends my catechism

  8. Bradley Bradley says:

    Still one of my most favorite histories or at least part one of perhaps three ; Our favorite wastrel Prince Henry Hal to his friends a drunkard a thief the bosom buddy of dear fat old Falstaff hides his bright sun behind vile clouds so as to shine all the brighter when his day finally arrivesIn here of course we establish the lout with a sharp mind and careful cunning dissembling for all to see but careful of the long game When his his father sore needs his son's aid Hal comes to the rescue throwing off all such base clouds or as little as need be to ensure both his father and the close court of his worthiness and he does so with flying colors killing the most worthy night in England the poor Percy of the Hot Blood and so restoring both his honor and his valor in both word and deedThis of course is just the prelude The foreshadowing The stage upon such things as the Ides of March are set Ever since I first read this I've always called such low tides in men The Hal Effect Let no one expect shit of thee and when the time draws neigh toot your horn and shock the living hell out of them;Seriously Shakespeare? Who knew that when Will Shook his Spear he'd ever have so much to say? ;

  9. Aishu Rehman Aishu Rehman says:

    I really do not like Shakespeare I find him rather vulgar and his humor is not the kind that good jokes should be made of John Falstaff in this play was a fun and ridiculous character He was perhaps meant to portray all the people who make themselves seem better than they really are which I think Shakespeare did cleverly So I guess if you like Shakespeare you might as well check this one out It's a uick read with funny characters

  10. Roy Lotz Roy Lotz says:

    Food for powder food for powder They’ll fill a pit as well as better This is undoubtedly one of Shakespeare’s strongest plays In tone and atmosphere it is far varied and naturalistic than its predecessor Richard II The scenes with Hal amid the low life of London are fetching and do much to alleviate the stiff and stuffy courtly atmosphere of some of Shakespeare’s histories The comedy also helps; and this play contains some of Shakespeare’s highest and lowest comedy both of which are embodied in the corpulent FalstaffMost readers will I suspect concur with Harold Bloom in deeming Falstaff one of the bard’s great creations—though we may not go so far as to put him on a level with Hamlet Bloom is correct however in seeing one’s opinion of Falstaff as a defining fact in one’s interpretation of the play There are those who see in Falstaff the spirit of carnival—the ecstatic embrace of all the pleasures of life and the total rejection of all the hypocrisies of society Others see Falstaff as a corrupter and a lout—a lazy and selfish foolFor my part I vacillate between these two attitudes There is no denying Falstaff’s wit; and his solilouy on the futility of honor is wonderfully refreshing puncturing through all of the political nonsense that motivates the bloody clashes Still I cannot help thinking that if the Falstaffian attitude were embraced too widely society itself would be impossible Some social restraint on our pleasure loving instincts is necessary if we are not to end up fat drunken thieves On the other hand a generous dose of the Falstaffian attitude can be a great antidote to the self righteous nonsense that leads us into war In any case Falstaff is not the only great character in this play Hotspur is a mass of furious energy an electrifying presence every time he is on stage Prince Hal though less charismatic is complex From the start he already has an ambivalent relationship with Falstaff a kind of icy affection or warm disregard Indeed Hal holds everyone at a distance and one senses a skeptical intelligence that is wary of committing until the circumstances are just right It is hard to read his character’s evolution as that of a wayward youth who learns to embrace his identity His actions seem far too deliberate his timing too perfect Was he hoping to learn something by keeping company with Falstaff and his lot?
