Henry V Act 4, Scene 5 Summary

  • Elsewhere on the battlefield, the French are losing big time, despite the fact that they outnumber the English.
  • The once confident Constable, Bourbon, and Orléans are running around shouting things like "O diable!" (O the devil!) and "Mort de ma vie!" (Death of my life!).
  • A guy named Rambures runs away in fear as Bourbon orders the French soldiers back into the fray.
  • Bourbon tells us that surrendering to (or running away from) the English would be like letting an enemy into his home to rape his daughter.
