Finding Sir John Oldcastle on the list of elect nation plays should alert us that, theatrically at least, Shakespeare was not of this party. As I have already remarked, Sir John Oldcastle was written to rebut Shakespeare’s Henriad. Borrowing from The Famous Victories of Henry V, Shakespeare had made Oldcastle the companion of Prince Henry’s lawless youth. Indeed, Shakespeare went well beyond The Famous Victories in giving his Oldcastle the unmistakable language of Puritan religiosity. Such a characterization could only be seen as a direct affront to the memory of a man reformers regarded as a Protestant hero and martyr.
