    " Read for Shakespeare Club. I really have a hard time reading these histories. Falstaff can be amusing, but all the people and which side they're on is confusing to me. Perhaps I should study English history first. "

    " Some good speeches. Not well written. Shakespeare phoning it in a lot. Rumor personified? Even Shakespeare made fun of that device in A Midsummer Night's Dream, as an example of bad playwriting. Characters pretty meh. Hal not that likable. Falstaff not that likable. King Henry not that likable. Eh. "

    " In some ways even better than Part 1, if only for the devastating scene at the end where Henry V--now king--disowns Falstaff. It's a situation we all find ourselves confronting (although we may not come to the same conclusion or handle it the same way) as we enter adulthood. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
