I apologize for the delay in posting. I have spent a great deal of time reading and pondering. Not just pondering the words of Shakespeare, but how to post about the plays with enough detail and still keep on schedule.
You see, I am doing a VERY thorough reading. I am looking up every word I don’t know. In the case of Henry VI, I am taking time to understand the historical truth behind the play. It will be hard to sufficiently cover all of that and keep to the 10 days per play schedule I would need to keep in order to finish on time.
After much deliberation, I decided to wing it. Some plays will take more time to cover and some will take less. I will simply have to keep on schedule as best I can. Some blog posts will cover whole acts and others, like the one I am posting today, will cover a single scene. As I figure it, this is the only way to make sure I don’t miss anything important. Each play is so drastically different; I will have to treat each one differently.
And with that, let’s start Henry VI, Part One.
