Summary
"Shakespeare's history plays, as fresh today as when they were written, have had a continuing life in stage and film productions. This study examines this tradition as well as giving an account of the critical debate on the plays. Warren Chernaik discusses each history play, and their distinctive characteristics, in turn: the three early Henry VI plays; the perennial stage favourite Richard III; King John; Richard II; Henry IV 1 and 2, famous for the character of Falstaff; Henry V; and Henry VIII."--BOOK JACKET
