    Summary

    Montjoy took a breath. It was autumn.

    A curse–in French–ran through his mind, but did not settle on his lips. Another bit of Herald’s craft, to keep his own speech inside. One more step took him closer to the door–closer to joining them downstairs, but the song’s verse–in English–rooted him to the floor.

    Our King went forth to Normandy
    With grace and might of chivalry
    There God for him wrought marvelously
    Wherefore England may call and cry: Deo gratias!

    Dear God in Heaven, he had forgotten. The shame of it nearly took his legs. But he had been trained to stand–and stand well–through whatever emotions might play in his mind. So he stood still, listened, and remembered.

    Summary

    Anno Domini 1415, towards the end of October, an army of miserable Englishmen trudges onwards through the fields of France. Among the boys with the baggage train is young Arthur, former squire to the late, lamented Falstaff. One evening, he is surprised to see that one of the king's soldiers is the handsome minstrel, Curt, whose antics had so appealed to him back in the taverns of London.

    (With many apologies to William Shakespeare.)

    Summary

    Upon the king! Let us our lives, our souls,
    Our debts, our careful wives
    Our children and our sins lay on the king!
    What infinite heart's-ease
    Must kings neglect, that private men enjoy!

    Henry V is a King of England who remakes the world around him as he sees it, but for one stubborn herald of the house of Valois, he is infinite heart's-ease and infinite heartbreak.

    This is a work in progress!

    Summary

    You do not under any circumstances, except by His Grace’s direct command, touch the King. Montjoy freezes, hand half extended to catch up Henry’s. He steps back and listens to the low hum and stamp of men and horses outside and to Henry’s painfully shallow, ragged breathing.

    August 31, 1422. Henry is dying of dysentery.

    Summary

    When thou art king , let not us that are squires of the night's body be called thieves of the day's beauty;
    Let us be Diana's foresters, gentlemen of the shade, minions of the moon.

    Shall there be gallows standing in England when thou art king?
    Do not thou, when thou art king, hang a thief.

    Summary

    The last production I saw of this play, it really struck me how Henry goes from the "Upon the king" speech to the St. Crispin's Day speech, and I wondered what was going on in his mind in between those two scenes. Here's one possible explanation.

    Summary

    There are certain times of year, and certain particular places, in which a king becomes not merely a king but also the inheritor of something ancient, and secretive, and almost - but not quite - forgotten.

    Summary

    The day after the signing of the Treaty of Troyes, Montjoy disappears. In company with a friend of Montjoy's, Henry follows, on a quest that surpasses all his previous adventures. Sequel to 'Jumping o'er Times' but can be read as a complete story.

    WARNING: There are brief mentions of crimes against children as committed by Gilles de Rais. Nothing explicit and nothing on-screen - but the crimes underpin the plot.

    Summary

    It's the spring of 1403. A party of French heralds is journeying from Dover to London, stopping for the night at an inn near Gadshill, where an irresponsible youth is staying too.

    An extra flashback for the 1989 film. Prince Henry is sixteen years old; Montjoy is a young herald, with the title Dis-le-Vrai, who is beginning to be noticed - and not just by the Heralds' College of France!

    Summary

    Sometime between the tennis-balls scene and St Crispin's Eve, Henry and Montjoy begin to speak to each other in more familiar terms, even though Henry still doesn't know what he should call the Herald. Perhaps this change takes place at Harfleur, amid the mud and rain of the siege.
