Yesterday was called the Feast of Crispian…

… so it seemed somewhat logical to watch Henry V (Hollow Crown version).

I personally really like the St Crispin’s Day speech. It never fails to cheer me up and it’s probably one of the greatest rousing speeches in English literature. That said, Henry V is at least as open to ‘war is hell’ interpretations as it is to ‘war is glorious’ interpretations, so that would understandably influence one’s stance on the iconic rousing speeches.
