A scene or two before the St. Crispin speech, H crosses the battlelines
and meets a company in shadow. I think this must have taken real
courage because H had no idea to whom he was speaking. H asked, if you
can't fight for King Henry, can you fight for Harry Monmouth. It occurs
to me that this must have had something to do with the lop-sidedness of
Agincourt. I can't help thinking that the wide experience dealing with
shady characters which H acquired from Falstaff must have had something
to do with his ability to his courage in this moment but I can't quite
put it all together.
Can the forum suggest?
