Shakespeare presents two difficulties for me... The first is the language. Most of it is easily enough understood... Or at least the context is. There is some, however, that is so archaic it gives me pause. The second is following the story in play format. I found it helpful to have a dictionary close by for reference and to read the play aloud as opposed to trying to read it quietly. I think it would be even better if it could be performed by a group as opposed to me alone.
The play reminds me of the mastery of Shakespeare. The lines are poetic and the imagery is fantastic. There was more than one quote that really stuck with me and I'll ponder these lines long after. I also enjoyed learning something of a history that wasn't taught when I was in school.
I am looking forward to Part 2 and would encourage anyone to give King Henry IV a chance.
What is honour? a word. What is that word, honour? air. A trim reckoning!—Who hath it? he that died o' Wednesday. Doth he feel it? no. Doth be hear it? no. Is it insensible, then? yea, to the dead. But will it not live with the living? no. Why? detraction will not suffer it. Therefore I'll none of it: honour is a mere scutcheon:—and so ends my catechism.
John Falstaff, in this play, was a fun and ridiculous character. He was, perhaps, meant to portray all the people who make themselves seem better than they really are, which I think Shakespeare did cleverly. Content:
Sex: the usual bawdy comments and 'sly' jokes concerning women. Ten being the worst content, this gets a two.
So I guess if you like Shakespeare, you might as well check this one out. It's a quick read with funny characters.
