On Hall . .. I've done the 868 page death march, but just because I hate
myself.  Actually, I see a somewhat valid point that scholars working
with the Histories should be familiar with Hall and Holinshed and the
GESTA HENRICI QUINTI and with any anonymous Famous Deeds plays hovering
about; however, I can't say with certainty that trudging completely
through Hall necessarily enlightens one.  By the way, I would love some
suggestions for where to find French Chronicles of the period.  Desmond
Seward appears to draw on French sources in his book HENRY V and I
haven't been able to track much French analysis down myself.

BTW, I found the anti-Irish crud in the FAERIE QUEENE to be a harder row
to hoe than Hall's CHRONICLE.  Back in the days of my youth, ULYSSES was
the initiation rite of choice.  I made it through that one, but I still
haven't gutted out all of FINNEGAN'S WAKE.  I usually quit around page
9.

You left out real and imaginary

All the best,
