“We Few, We Happy Few, We Band of Brothers…”


Today (October 25th) being St. Crispin’s Day, I feel it is only right to give a speech. That is to say, share a speech – one written by none other than William Shakespeare himself. The above clip, in which King Henry V addresses his troops before the Battle of Agincourt, is taken from Kenneth Branagh’s 1989 film adaption of Henry V.

Reading the St. Crispin’s Day speech (click here) is one thing; hearing it delivered with the power and irresistable charisma that Branagh demonstrates is another thing altogether. Kinda makes you want to grab a sword and fight alongside these fellows.
