Act IV, Scene V

Summary

Talbot urges his son to flee. John refuses to desert his father lie
a coward. Both men are resolved to stay there till the end and
fight unto death.

Notes

Talbot is a warrior but he has a fatherís heart. He can never
desert his soldiers and is ready to meet his end but he canít
bear to see his son die. Talbot personifies all the courage and
virtue of an English warrior. And this scene highlights his
courage in its full glory. It is seen in his refusal to flee and save
his life. His son too has inherited the same undaunted spirit
from his father: heíd rather die than bring shame unto his
name. This scene showcases the old-fashioned brand of
courage that personifies a knight: honor before life itself.
