Mayra Diaz Professor Briggs English 117A March 2, 2018 King Henry IV Paper #2 Transforming is in the eye of the beholder. The transformation of Prince Harry, also known as Hal, is that evidence in William Shakespeare's King Henry IV. His personal alteration is shown from his emotions deep down in his soul.
The scene in which King Henry IV confronts Prince Hal is a pivotal moment in their relationship’s development throughout the William Shakespeare’s account of the rebellions against the King’s rule in the play Henry IV Part I. Act 3 Scene 2 offers an insight into the ruling ideologies of Henry and his heir apparent Hal, as rulers, while each character considers the upcoming battle and attempt to determine what makes worthy ruler. Henry expresses unresolved anxiety about how he came into his throne, and his uncertainties about Hal, his successor, while Hal is desperate to recover his father’s trust in him. My group decided to include this scene in our performance because it embodied the evolution of the father-son relationships within the play. Tanya, Gillian and I focused our performance on the dynamics of Henry and Hal’s relationship, and how their relationship informed our understanding of their characters. Particularly, our group centered our performance on the value of the competing political ideologies between the father and son.
