Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shakespeare's Henry VI plays dramatize contemporary as much as Elizabethan issues: the struggle for power, the manoeuvres of politicians, social unrest, civil war. This edition draws on experience of the play in rehearsal and performance to focus on both its theatricality and contemporary relevance in a wide-ranging introduction and detailed commentary.

Shakespeare's Henry VI plays dramatize contemporary as much as Elizabethan issues: the struggle for power, the maneuvers of politicians, social unrest, civil war. This edition draws on experience of the play in rehearsal and performance to focus on both its theatricality and contemporary relevance in a wide-ranging introduction and detailed commentary. As a new addition to The Oxford Shakespeare series, this edition presents a modern-spelling text, collated and edited from all existing printings, plus on-page commentary and notes to explain meaning, staging, language, and allusions. A detailed Introduction considers composition, sources, performances, and changing critical attitudes to the play, while the textual Introduction reconsiders the complex relationship between the two original texts. Further, the book is handsomely illustrated with production photographs and related art, plus a full index to both the Introduction and the Commentary.
