MonkeyNotes-Henry VI, Part 1 by William Shakespeare

Table of Contents

Act III, Scene IV

Summary

Talbot is in Paris to pay his respects to the King. The King
welcomes him and to show his appreciation of Talbot’s several
victories creates him the Earl of Shrewsbury. Veron, a servant
of York’s, strikes Basset, Somerset’s servant. The latter
resolves to seek redress for this wrong by presenting his case to
the King.

Notes

Henry VI is crowned in Paris, and Talbot is there to pay his
respects. As the young King’s words reveal, Talbot had served
his father, Henry V. In this scene, the past and the present
come together: the past in the form of Talbot, who embodies in
himself all the valor of yesteryears and the present in the form
of the young, inexperienced king.

The quarrel between Vernon and Basset reveals that the dispute
between their masters is still smoldering. This quarrel is only
an overt manifestation of the hostility that exists between the
two men.
