Why should you read Henry VI, part 1?
- Joan of Arc is the villain. That's right, the famed gender-bending Frenchwoman makes a foray into Brit lit! The English change their mind about her madonna/whore status every other line or so.
- "Submission, dauphin? 'Tis a mere French word. We English warriors wot not what it means."
- If you like the Republican presidential debates, you'll love the treachery and foolishness of medieval leaders!
