Welcome, 12EN4! I’m back, baby!
This website is designed to help you study Henry IV, Part One. I’m sure I will go into it in depth, but I love the idea of Shakespeare’s histories: they’re like his equivalent to Game of Thrones, or the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Recurring characters, political intrigue, violent action and plenty of wisecracks. Deadpool would blush at some of Shakespeare’s gags.
To get the most out of this website, you will need to register for a hypothes.is account. Please use your student email for this. It will enable you add and interact with annotations on the text of the play as we progress. You will be required to make annotations this term.
This term we will be reading the play and watching various cinematic and theatrical versions. We will also be writing! Stay tuned for updates on class requirements. And feel free to make notes; I will try to answer questions in your annotations.
See you soon!
