Shakespeare follows England's favourite hero king from his wild youth to his conquest of France, yet these plays do not simply celebrate patriotic legend. They reveal a calculating young man conscious of the roles he plays, and show both Lancastrian kings to be haunted by their usurpation and burdened by the responsibilities of kingship. Falstaff and Pistol are not just comically diverting: they provide debunking commentary on the main action.
