New Month… Bring on Prince Hal

Welcome December, and our own little holiday gift to you, The First Part of Henry the Fourth.

Many critics have called this play, its sequel, and the crowd-pleaser that follows (Henry the Fifth) the Henriad. That works for me.

Beginning reading it, I’m finding SOOO much foreshadowing… Willie boy MUST have known he was going to take this all the way to Henry V (and he does a pretty good job linking back to Richard the Second as well).

Comment?
