The Life of King Henry the Eighth
Penguin Books, 1981 - 150 pagini
Caridad Svich offers a new take on the history play, which tells the story of Henry VIII's marriage to Anne Boleyn.
Shakespeare's Henry VIII is a story of a brazen race to power and the desire for an heir. Advised by Cardinal Wolsey, Henry VIII is caught between church and state as he meets Anne Boleyn and seeks to annul his marriage to Queen Katherine. This episodic and plot-driven play examines the machinations of royal power. Shakespeare's Henry VIII, in this new translation by Caridad Svich, is a swift-moving, complex tale of intrigue.
This translation of Henry VIII was written as part of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Play On! project, which commissioned new translations of thirty-nine Shakespeare plays. These translations present work from "The Bard" in language accessible to modern audiences while never losing the beauty of Shakespeare's verse. Enlisting the talents of a diverse group of contemporary playwrights, screenwriters, and dramaturges from diverse backgrounds, this project reenvisions Shakespeare for the twenty-first century. These volumes make these works available for the first time in print--a new First Folio for a new era.

This makes bold mouths . Tongues spit their duties out , and cold hearts freeze Allegiance in them . Their curses now Live where their prayers did ; and it's come to pass This tractable obedience is a slave To each incensèd will .
If we live thus tamely , To be thus jaded by a piece of scarlet , Farewell nobility ! let his grace go forward And dare us with his cap , like larks . WOLSEY Is poison to thy stomach . SURREY All goodness Yes , that goodness Of gleaning ...
CHAMBERLAIN As I live , If the king blame me for't , I'll lay ye all By th ' heels , and suddenly ; and on your heads Clap round fines for neglect . Y ' are lazy knaves , And here ye lie baiting of bombards when Ye should do service .
