Opis

Nowhere else has Shakespeare demonstrated his gift to turn the chronicle into a drama so vividly and visibly as in the third part of Henry VI. In the previous two plays, battle scenes are also reproduced: in the first part, the battle in France is displayed especially vividly and vividly, but only in the last play of the trilogy the playwright managed to show almost the entire course of the Rose War in two hours of presentation: from the consequences of the first battle in St. Albans in 1455 before the defeat of Queen Margarita at Tewkesbury, which happened sixteen years later.

ACT I

SCENE I. London. The Parliament-house

[Alarum. Enter DUKE of YORK, EDWARD, RICHARD, NORFOLK, MONTAGUE, WARWICK, and Soldiers.]

WARWICK.

I wonder how the king escap’d our hands.

YORK.

While we pursued the horsemen of the North,

He slyly stole away and left his men,

Whereat the great Lord of Northumberland,

Whose warlike ears could never brook retreat,

Cheer’d up the drooping army; and himself,

Lord Clifford, and Lord Stafford, all abreast,

Charg’d our main battle’s front, and breaking in,

Were by the swords of common soldiers slain.

EDWARD.

Lord Stafford’s father, Duke of Buckingham,

Is either slain or wounded dangerously;

I cleft his beaver with a downright blow.

That this is true, father, behold his blood.

[Showing his bloody sword.]

MONTAGUE.

And, brother, here ’s the Earl of Wiltshire’s blood,

[To York, showing his.]

Whom I encounter’d as the battles join’d.

RICHARD.

Speak thou for me, and tell them what I did.

[Throwing down the Duke of Somerset’s head.]

YORK.

Richard hath best deserv’d of all my sons.–

But is your grace dead, my Lord of Somerset?

NORFOLK.

Such hope have all the line of John of Gaunt!

RICHARD.

Thus do I hope to shake King Henry’s head.

WARWICK.

And so do I.–Victorious Prince of York,

Before I see thee seated in that throne

Which now the house of Lancaster usurps,

I vow by heaven these eyes shall never close.

This is the palace of the fearful king,

And this the regal seat; possess it, York,

For this is thine, and not King Henry’s heirs’.

YORK.

Assist me, then, sweet Warwick, and I will;

For hither we have broken in by force.

NORFOLK.

We’ll all assist you; he that flies shall die.

YORK.

Thanks, gentle Norfolk.–Stay by me, my lords;–

And, soldiers, stay and lodge by me this night.

WARWICK.

And when the king comes, offer him no violence,

Unless he seek to thrust you out perforce.

[They retire.]

YORK.

The queen this day here holds her parliament,

But little thinks we shall be of her council.

By words or blows here let us win our right.

RICHARD.

Arm’d as we are, let ’s stay within this house.

WARWICK.

The bloody parliament shall this be call’d,

Unless Plantagenet, Duke of York, be king,

And bashful Henry depos’d, whose cowardice

Hath made us bywords to our enemies.

YORK.

Then leave me not, my lords; be resolute.

I mean to take possession of my right.

WARWICK.

Neither the king, nor he that loves him best,
