Talking About Shakespeare: This Blessed Plot, This Earth, This Realm, This England

Hay Festival 2016, 

The historian was set alight by Shakespeare’s muse of fire when he first saw Henry V as a child. He examines Shakespeare’s making of the myths of England. He hymns the Histories, the kings and the commoners, the band of brothers, and the spirit of Shakespeare’s greatest knight, Sir John Falstaff.
