    I agree with this view that Henry VIII was responsible for the English foreign policy failures in the years 1509-1529, and this is because he was too keen to establish his presence in international affairs and believed that he had to demonstrate his strengths to his subjects. This way of thought was due to his peaceful rise to the throne and because of his confident personality; Henry wanted to win victories on the battlefield and wanted to establish his image of a Renaissance warrior.…

  • Vengeance In Shakespeare's Henry V

    seminal classic Henry V is the culmination of the Henriad tetralogy, and is an allusion to the aphorism that “the pen is mightier than the sword,” for despite being renowned as a warrior king in the Bard’s tale, King Henry fought his battles with the mettle of his rhetoric rather than the metal of his blade.

  • Henry 4 Protagonist

    A compelling debate has been ignited as a result of Shakespeare’s play Henry the Fourth, Part One. The play’s protagonist seems to be unclear and thus many critics have drawn their own conclusions. Anne Marie McNamara explains her point of view in her essay Henry IV: The King as Protagonist. While McNamara claims that King Henry IV is the protagonist of the play, Prince Hal is the true protagonist because a major portion of the play focuses on the idea of Prince Hal becoming king.
