Henry The Fifth Essay

481 words - 2 pages

The character in the play Henry the fifth seemed to me a newfound leader. Although Surinbrue said he seemed to have heartless egotism I believe that Henrys role and newfound leadership merely blinded him into a lot of speeches but only because he was trying to prove himself in the shadow of his father.Although Henry was said to be a wild and reckless boy growing up, I believe that faced with his father death he quickly realized it was now his position to look after and be a leader to all the populace OF England.

A quote I found to be important was on page 76, Act 4 Scene 1. " I think the king is but a man, as I am, The violet smells to him as it doth to me; the element shows to him as it doth me; all his senses but human conditions." I think that this quote is really important because as I said before I believe that King Henry in the play as well as real life was a man with his feet on the ground. Whom knew what he believed in and although he did hold his title highly he did not flaunt it and looked to common place man as though they had opinions that were as important as his own.On the other hand Henry could be quite overbearing as Christian King said " brute force" seemed to be what Henry kept control with. But if you think about it a king with no backbone could not have done what Henry accomplished. " We do deliver you. Get you therefor hence (poor miserable wretches) to your death." In act 2 scene 2 this was proclaimed to some betrayers showing that Henry was not just there to win battles and wars but also to protect his kingdom, people and the crown from people unloyal to him.And so in brief conclusion, I believe that the character of the king Henry was a fair, protective and very unforgiving man who earned the respect of his and Frances kingdoms.
