Overview

The stage is William Marshall's mind, as though he were remembering King Henry's life. Though it follows chronologically it is not a chronicle play; its form is one of memory and contemplation. It adds up to no more than a sketch of Henry, whose character covers a vast field of human nature, as the thirty-five years of his reign contains a concentration of the human condition. Contained in the volume The Plays of Christopher Fry 2
