Henry V: The Graphic Novel: Original Text
This full colour graphic novel presents Henry V just as Shakespeare intended: in its original and unabridged format. Ideal for purists, students and readers who will appreciate the unaltered text.
It's the 15th century and the Archbishop of Canterbury, worried over impending legislation that would effectively rob the Church in England of its power and wealth, convinces Henry V to forego this pursuit in favour of laying claim to France. This title presents the historic tale of war and peace between England and France in the reign of Henry V.See and experience the Battle of Agincourt as never before - and fully appreciate a decisive chapter in the history of the realm.
This award-winning title not only provides a wonderful treatment of the text, but also interesting background pieces on Shakespeare, King Henry V and the Battle of Agincourt.
As with all our Shakespeare titles the period is faithful to the Bard’s intentions, and there is a choice of three text versions.
