Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This new edition of Shakespeare's most celebrated war play points to the many inconsistencies in the presentation of Henry V. Andrew Gurr's substantial introduction explains the play as a reaction to the decade of war which preceded its writing, and analyses the play's double vision of Henry as both military hero and self-seeking individual. Professor Gurr discusses the context of Elizabethan law and morality; he provides a comprehensive collection of source materials and a history of the play's stage and film adaptations.
