Henry VI Part 2
Henry VI Part 2 | William Shakespeare
8 posts | 8 read
"Henry VI, Part 2" presents a kind of story that was popular before Shakespeare began writing, tracing the fall of powerful individuals to their untimely deaths. The first to go is the Duke of Gloucester, Lord Protector of England and the most powerful man in the kingdom, who is murdered after his wife goes into exile. Next to meet a bad end is the Duke of Suffolk, the queen s lover, who rules England through her. After Suffolk conspires with the cardinal of Winchester to kill Gloucester, he is banished and assassinated. The cardinal dies raving of his own guilt. Ultimately, the king s weakness lies behind these events. Preferring spiritual contemplation, he has left others to contend for power. Now his liberty is at risk as Jack Cade, and then the Duke of York, rise against him. The play leaves us in suspense about Henry s fate by ending with the start of the Wars of the Roses a conflict setting the white rose of the Duke of York against the red rose of King Henry, of the House of Lancaster.

Actual conversation this morning!

ME: There is but one egg in the crate!

DH: Methinks someone has been reading Shakespeare again.

ME: Methinks the person who used the *eleven* other eggs should go buy a dozen more or *heads are going to roll!*“

DH: Witch.

ME: [Staring hard] Heads. Will. Roll.

Eyelit Love it! 😂 1mo

In 2H6, Richard Plantagenet finally makes his move: inciting Jack Cade‘s Rebellion, amassing an army of Irish kerns and, openly challenging King Henry‘s legitimacy to the throne in court!

I think “Henry VI, Part II” is a boring name for this play of action and intrigue. I would name it, “Heads are Gonna Roll!” 😜

So, I popped open a bottle of Samuel Smith's apple cider and noticed the York rose on the bottle cap! Reading the label, I found out that the brewery is in N. Yorks, England. I'm guessing the War of the Roses still rages on...

(And yes, I'm aware that there's a copy of 1H6 in the background even though I'm reading and tagging 2H6! It was handy and color coordinates!) :-D
