(p.45) Chapter 4 Sack Drama
A Touch More Rare

The arguments that where all such sack drama that includes the figure of Falstaff is supposed to have been left behind, it returns, drunk and railing. To theorize the writer's discourse requires an effort to interpret the playwright's playmaking practice at the point of, or hinge of, the dialectical relationship between reading and writing. The author has tried to follow Harry Berger in claiming that Henry's struggle with himself is inexorably connected to his struggle with Falstaff suggesting also that we can attend to the displacements of the playwright's reading into his writing through the inability to exclude Oldcastle-in-Falstaff.
