I had to read this for a Shakespeare In Film class, and it was the first time I d ever read any of his histories I really fell in love, though I was already a fan of the guy s, but I didn t expect so much from what I was sure would be tedious subject matter. Kindof a placeholder for all Shakespeare s histories, which I spent the summer of 2010 reading Individual reviews for most of them arearound here somewhere. I cannot express how much I love Shakespeare s histories Henry V has been my favorite for a while, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of them together.
