HENRY IV Part 1

Sundays 11, 18, 25 of April and 2, 9, 16 of May

"Here comes lean Jack, here comes bare-bone. How now, my sweet creature of bombast, how long is't ago Jack, since thou sawest thine own knee?"

 

 This play, and it's second part, stand at a mid-point between Richard II and Henry V. The first embodying a nature least suited to kingship, the latter portraying a man made to play his sovereign part perfectly. Henry IV himself, continues the tragic, historical narrative. However, he is totally over-shadowed by Sir John Falstaff, who represents the top of Shakespeare's achievement in the creation of an immortal, comic type.

 

This six week course, on Zoom (4.00pm - 5.45pm London time), takes place over consecutive Sundays.
