Nyssa's Reading Life

I like books. Well-written books, which generally excludes most YA (sorry, everybody). I edit literary fiction in my spare time, and I eat up books with great prose and no pretentiousness. I also love good speculative fiction and frequently read classics.

Henry V (Folger Shakespeare Library Series)

Henry V - Paul Werstine, Barbara A. Mowat, William Shakespeare This is my first Shakespeare history play, and I was not disappointed. There were a few flaws with this play that detracted from its overall flow and structure (too much about the glove and the leek, and a gratuitously long fifth act after the battle had finished), but there were of course some great speeches. Really good stuff.
