Publisher's Summary

Henry V is a study of kingship, patriotism, and heroic determination tempered by tender comedy as Henry courts Katherine, princess of France.

Henry, the noble and courageous young king of England, decides to invade France, believing he has a rightful claim to the throne. At Agincourt he leads his army into battle against the powerful French forces and, against all the odds, wins a famous victory.

Henry is played by Jamie Glover, Brian Cox is the Chorus, and the Hostess is played by Elizabeth Spriggs.

    Story
    "The Best Version of the Best Thing Ever Written"
    What did you love best about Henry V?

    What's not to love? The quality of the production, the skill of the actors, the work of Shakespeare all combine to make this a truly memorable experience.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Henry V?

    Of course, everyone remembers (and many can recite) Act III, Scene I and Act IV Scene III. Both are worthy of an entry into the "English Language Hall of Fame" if there were such a thing.

    However, there is pure gold to be found in the several appearances of Flewellen throughout the story. I particularly love the exchange between Flewellen and King Henry immediately following the Battle of Agincourt. The sheer admiration and love Flewellen has for King Henry - both as his sovereign and as a fellow Welshman - for me must be among the best written and, in this case, best presented exchanges in theater.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The actors in each and every role are superb and bring the story to life the way Shakespeare intended. The entire production is excellent and I can only imagine that the man himself would have been proud to know that his work was handled in such a masterful way by the directors, actors and recording engineers alike.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    "...The pretty and sweet manor of it forced those waters from me which I would have stopped. But I had not so much of man in me and all my mother came into mine eyes and gave me up to tears." - Exeter, Act IV Scene VI


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot recommend this version of Shakespeare's Henry V enough. Like a great novel or a moving film, this audiobook is one you will keep as a treasured part of your library to enjoy time and time again.
