Henry IV Part 2

Hastings

Character Analysis

Hastings is a rebel leader. Like the Archbishop of York and Mowbray, he's arrested at Gaultree Forest and later executed for treason. Hastings gets to speak one of the coolest lines in the play (even though he probably doesn't know how poignant his words are): "We are time's subjects" (1.3.8). Want to know why this line is so cool? Check out "Quotes" in the theme "Time," to find out.
