Henry V Act 2, Prologue Summary

  • The Chorus steps out on stage and sets the scene for us: England is pumped up and preparing for war and the French are shaking in their boots because they know what's coming.
  • The Chorus also has some bad news – three English traitors (Cambridge, Lord Scrope, and Sir Thomas Grey) have taken money from France and are plotting to assassinate King Henry.
