Florence March, Endnote 3

In 2.5 of Henry VI Part 3, for instance, Henry VI watches the civil war from a distance, as he sits on a molehill, and comments upon what he sees, acting as a choric character or mediator between stage and audience. In the same scene, Shakespeare zooms in on the battlefield to dramatize two parallel, absurd sequences in which a son has just killed his father and a father has just killed his son.
