QUESTIONS

What is meant by the reference to the Archbishop of York as “a
man with double surety”?

How does Lord Bardolph justify Hotspur as a man who “lines
himself with hope”? How is Hotspur the antithesis of Hal?

Why does the King hope to go the Holy Land?

Why does Mowbray say that the rebels will not be safe?

What is the King’s comment on the character of his son?
Discuss Hal’s own thoughts about the prospect of being
England’s next King. Is he justified in living a libertine life now
if he knows that he will settle down when he has to?

What does the King mean when he says to Falstaff “I do despise
my dream”?


King Henry IV makes his strongest appeal as a grief-stricken
father and a man fermented with guilt--support this idea.

What facets of Falstaff’s character are expressed in the play?

“A good wit will make use of anything.” Comment on
Falstaff’s philosophy of life. Give its ironic aspect.

If Hal is by far the more present, interesting, and important
character in this play, why do you think Shakespeare names this
Henry IV, Part 2 instead of Henry V, Part 1?
