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.

The duke Shall govern England . ' KATHERINE If I know you well , You were the duke's surveyor and lost your office On the complaint o'th'tenants . Take good heed You charge not in your spleen a noble person And spoil your nobler soul .
My vows and prayers 89 Yet are the king's , and till my soul forsake Shall cry for blessings on him . May he live 91 Longer than I have time to tell his years ; 85 63 premises evidence 66 look take care 67 build ... graves i.e. thrive ...
Saba was never More covetous of wisdom and fair virtue Than this pure soul shall be . All princely graces That mould up such a mighty piece as this is , With all the virtues that attend the good , Shall still be doubled on her .
