MonkeyNotes-Henry VI, Part 1 by William Shakespeare

Table of Contents

Act IV, Scene III

Summary

Dauphin has been joined by two mighty troops in Bordeaux.
York is unable to go and help Talbot because he has not
received his promised supply of horsemen from Somerset.
Lucy pleads with York, to fly to Talbotís aid. York is unable to
do so and holds Somerset responsible. Lucy fears the fate that
is going to befall Talbot and his son and realizes that
dissension in English ranks is going to cost them everything
that Henry V won.

Notes

Clever military strategy has given Dauphin the upper hand over
Talbot. Talbot is trapped and needs help to fight the mighty
forces of the French gathered together. York, who is at hand to
help, cannot do so. The disaster, that the English King and
Exeter feared, from the animosity between Somerset and York,
is now upon them. Friction between the two noblemen has
affected the smooth working of the English military. The
consequence of Somersetís spite for York has turned into a
potentially fatal blow for Talbot.
