Abstract:

In Henry IV and Henry VI, Shakespeare explored English history and the English character in a new and unprecedented way. His England wasn't just a place where monarchs paraded and commoners were relegated to the shadows. His was a democratic vision in which all men and women - kings, queens, and cutpurses alike - took center stage with breathtaking boldness. In this program, Simon Schama discovers how Shakespeare's history plays created a rich vision of England which still influences and inspires today.
