    There are lots of things about this play that please and impress me, but somehow I don t think it quite works The best things about it are two scenes probably by Fletcher the sympathetic portrait of Katharine of Aragon s self defense and the dignified soliloquy of the disgraced Cardinal Wolsey after his fall The next best thing is the artful, ironic context Shakespeare builds around them, first by creating a magnificent description of the wrestling match staged between Henry VIII and Francis There are lots of things about this play that please and impress me, but somehow I don t think it quite works The best things about it are two scenes probably by Fletcher the sympathetic portra...

    I can t say that the writing is bad, per se,that the topic is unworthy except for being an obligatory propagandist piece to prop up the worthiness of the Anglican church versus the Catholics.I m sure no one is surprised on this count.There s rather less of the real drama that surrounded the King the man and all his travails or misogyny surrounding his six wives or the interesting women surrounding this historic character, rather it s just the focus on the single quasi divorce still under t I can t say that the writing is bad, per se,that the topic is unworthy except for being an obligatory propagandist piece to prop up the worthiness of the Anglican church versus the Catholics.I m sure no one is surprised on this count.There s rather less of the real drama that surrounded the King the man and all his travails or misogyny surrounding his six wives or the interestin...

    Make no mistake, Henry VIII is not a bad play It rates 2 stars only because it doesn t hold up against the 3 and 4 star ratings I ve given other Shakespeare plays here on my shelves.The biggest problem Henry VIII has is a lack of focus and or a central character.In terms of focus, we go from Katherine s divorce to Wolsey s downfall to Cranmer s rise to Elizabeth s baptism All in five acts There s too much here to adequately develop in the scope of a single play even in the hands of a mast Make no mistake, Henry VIII is not a bad play It rates 2 stars only because ...

    Read this play in a day as well, not because I liked it, but it was kind of boring to be honest I thought I d like it because I knew who Henry VIII was before hand However, like most of Shakespeare s Histories they tend to get boring for me and feels like he was forced to righ...

    Chewed through this mainly because I badly sprained my ankle and am stuck in bed, and saw the BBC production of it but could barely follow it and felt vaguely guilty, like I d slighted Will or something After reading it and viewing it once again and focusing on the long, detailed critical introduction by Jay L Halio which was quite good and hardly at all stiff , what strikes me is not how it s about Henry VIII because it isn t, really, just as King John isn t really about that king and Hen Chewed through this mainly because I badly sprained my ankle and am stuck in bed, and saw th...
