Example text

In 1 Hmry VI the political argument is much more involved, as we hear in the next scene when Mortimer indicates the Yorkist claim on the crown. 96-7). Richard's argument is ambiguous, questionbegging and possibly treasonous in itself. To be 'attached' is to be arrested, as the Earl of Cambridge and the other two conspirators certainly were, though he was 'not attainted' only in the sense that there was no specific parliamentary Act of Attainder before his arrest. Acts of Attainder were sometimes issued following appeal of treason by one person of another to get the accused to court to defend himself against the charge.

In dramatising overtly nationalist chronicles the deconstructive ambivalence in the word and deed of the printed page is brought to life in speech and action on the stage. In the very attempt to join in the glorification of such a hero as Henry V, for example, Shakespeare equally revealed the dubious grounds of such celebration. 4) to the sources for 1 Henry VI argument and action are immediately intertwined, like the rose briars on stage: the argument between the adherents of York and Lancaster and the action of plucking the red and white roses.

An audience is surely left aghast at such single-minded piety which has rendered the king politically blind and lame.
