Henry IV, Part 1 - William Shakespeare, Barbara A. Mowat, Paul Werstine

I struggled a bit through Henry IV, Part 1 and barely managed to work out a coherent topic to write a short paper on for class tonight. I swear, I don't know if I'm either really glad I only have my Shakespeare class once a week for three hours, or if I would rather have it an hour a day, three times a week... So far, I'm not regretting the night class, but maybe I would understand the plays a bit more if I have time to discuss is in class before I had to write the papers...


Anyway, I don't think I liked this one as much as As You Like It, though I was sold on it more near the end. I think I'll decide a star rating for this after I watch a film version (woot for Tom Hiddleston!). I need to see this one acted out before I can really decide how I felt about it.
