Shakespeare's Henry V has traditionally been acclaimed for its depiction of the psychological and political impact of warfare, and it remains one of the most widely-discussed plays in the cannon.
In this study, Professor Meron uses rare medieval ordinances, and other medieval and Renaissance historical and legal sources to provide new contexts for Shakespeare's famous play. The result is an account of how Shakespeare's Henry V and other 'histories' dramatically articulated complex medieval and Renaissance attitudes to warfare and the conduct of nations and individuals in time of war.
The author uses the play and the campaign itself as a frame for the examination of the medieval laws of war, and examines stability and change in attitudes toward aspects of the law of war. This study should be of interest not only to scholars of war, history of law and literature, but also to anyone interested in this important period in the development of international humanitarian laws.
