Chorus................................................................................PARVUNA NOORY ACT I, SCENE 1 - The King’s Palace, London Seckman High School

The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishop of Ely marvel at length that the king has proved himself a wise statesman and grumble about Parliament using church money. Canterbury reveals that he has just offered the king an immense sum of funds to support a war in France.

DRAMATIS PERSONÆ ACT III, SCENES 1-3 - Harfleur Castle, France Cahokia High School At the siege of Harfleur, Henry encourages his troops with a speech extolling the courage of English soldiers. Bardolph enthusiastically shouts a battle cry, but Pistol, Nym, and the Boy seek safety. Capt. Fluellen appears and harasses the reluctant soldiers up to the front, though the Boy stays behind long enough to soliloquize on the cowardice and dishonesty of his masters. Gower, an English captain, talks with Fluellen and Macmorris about the tactics of siege warfare. Henry addresses the Governor of Harfleur, who surrenders to the English forces.

St. Louis Homeschool Network On the morning of battle (which is also St. Crispin’s Day), the English forces comment on how much the French army outnumbers them. Westmoreland wishes they had reinforcements from England, but King Henry rallies his army that their triumph will be the greater because they are fewer, and the army will remember this day for the rest of their lives.
