Leaders in Disguise
I am keying the line numbers below to the Pelican edition.
Editions often differ slightly, however, in the way that they deal with
the line numbers (you will often find that they are slightly different
from one another), so if your edition of shakespeare is either not the
pelican, or is not line numbered, I would recommend having a look at the
pelican edition (either in the library, in a Branes & Noble or
Borders, or by looking at a friends copy) in order to quickly locate the
scenes I am referring.
Answer both questions:
1. Compare and contrast the following two "wooing" scenes a)
5.2.100-325 in Henry V (pay attention to the way Henry and the French
Duke of Burgundy talk about Katherine as a metaphor for France near the
end of this passage ) ; and b) 1.2.1-268 in Richard III (the wooing of
Lady Anne). In your answer, consider the respective social and political
positions (the relative strengths and weakness, among other things) of
the wooers and the wooees (if thats even a word); also, consider the
similarities and differences in the approaches of Henry and Richard. As
always, the best answers will be grounded in the text of the plays. Use
plenty of examples / quotes from he text.
2. Compare and contrast the uses of disguise and
dissimulation in 1 Henry IV, Henry V and Richard III. Focus equally on
such scenes as 1 Henry IV 1.2.190-212, Henry V 4.1.35-281, and Richard
III 1.1.1-40, 1.3.324-338, 3.7.57-246, and 5.3.217-223. As always, (the
best answers will be grounded in the text of the plays. use plenty of
examples / quotes from the text.
