The politics of imperialism: Henry V.

Traditionally Shakespeare's Henry V has been seen as a panegyric celebrating King Henry V as the ideal monarch. Some critics acclaim Henry as the poet's finest conception of the statesman-king, a monarch who brought unity and peace to a disturbed England, expanded his domain by invading France, and became the one beacon of triumph in the dark years of civil unrest prior to the ascension of the Tudors.
