“Henry IV, Part I” By William Shakespeare Review

The play dramatises part of the reign of King Henry IV of England, beginning with the battle at Homildon Hill late in 1402, and ending with King Henry’s victory in the Battle of Shrewsbury in mid-1403.

This play is another play by William Shakespeare which didn’t work for me at all and I ended up DNF-ing this one. 

There is a lots of build up to a battle which doesn’t lead anywhere in this play which truly shows how bad this play is. 

Reading this play really was a torture for me because in was very confused on what was happening because I couldn’t keep up with what was happening. 

The plot here is very boring and to be honest and I truly didn’t care about this play at all. But also the plot changes the main focus every 5 minutes because it goes from being political, to being about rebellion then to being a drunken adventure. This annoyed me a lot because it kept confusing me more and more and I really couldn’t keep up with what was happening in this play.

The characters in this play were super boring and they made me want to stab myself in the eye with something. 

I Give Play 1 / 5
