Shakespeare not copyrighted[edit]

No, I don't think Shakespeare's plays are copyrighted. But thanks for asking. Septimus.stevens (talk) 21:30, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Did the real Henry V gave a speech like this?[edit]

I always wondered if the real Henry V gave a motivational speech before the battle or if he said something to his troops before the battle. I guess that the speech in the play of Shakespear is fictional, but before the battle, did the real Henry V said something inspiring/motivational to his men? ––– — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.179.26.43 (talk) 01:16, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

I've wondered this myself. The Battle of Agincourt was amazing in many ways -- not least in that Henry V's amazing victory soon became irrelevant! ... Especially after the deeds of the peasant girl from Domremy village -- Joan of Arc. Septimus.stevens (talk) 13:19, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Good article![edit]

I think some Wiki readers may appreciate being able to find the St. Crispin speech. If some "boilerplate" is needed to make the article "encyclopedic" I hope someone will add it.

Thus, I've removed the deletion notice.Septimus.stevens (talk) 15:56, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
