Summary

Shakespeare’s play depicting the waning years of both a king and a thief—and a young heir’s changing relationship with each of them. Prince Hal has proven his worth on the battlefield, but even as the elder Henry’s condition grows weaker, Hal’s ability to follow in his father’s footsteps may be in doubt. His longtime friendship with the drunken, thieving, yet thoroughly alluring Falstaff, and the influence of their rowdy tavern companions, are tempting his return to his old ways. As the reign of the aging Henry IV nears its end, the man in line for the throne faces a choice that will determine not only his own future, but that of England.

    A grim portrait of World War I army life that set the standard for Hemingway, Mailer, and other acclaimed chroniclers of warfare. They come to the army from different Americas: Fuselli, a San Francisco store clerk bucking for promotion; Chrisfield, a laid-back Indiana farm boy; and Andrews, a Harvard graduate and promising New York City musician. In basic training, they are told it doesn’t matter where a man is born or what he wants to be. The best soldiers are automatons. To be a perfect cog within a vast military machine is all his country asks of him. In the muddy fields and trenches of France, they learn the terrible meaning of their sacrifice: Once lost, a soldier’s humanity can never be regained.   Based on John Dos Passos’s firsthand knowledge of the Great War, Three Soldiers is a grim and utterly realistic portrait of army life. A modernist masterpiece and a brave statement of fact in a time of sentiment, it set a standard that Hemingway, Jones, Mailer, O’Brien, and every other chronicler of the American war experience has since tried to match.    This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    The idea for this book came from reading E.A.J. Honigmann's book  'Shakespeare, The Lost Years' in which he makes a strong case for Shakespeare spending time in Lancashire as a teacher. It was a short step from reading this book, and many more, to imagining his life as a boy: through his teenage years, thinking about girls and wondering about his future. The healthy interest in sex he shows in his plays as an adult would no doubt have been stimulated by his encounters in his teenage years. This story ends with his marriage to Anne Hathaway and his eventual escape to London.
