Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The gaudy, blabbing and remorseful day

Is crept into the bosom of the sea.”

—Henry VI

 

Eminent Shakespearean scholars Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen provide a fresh new edition of the three-part classic history that revolves around the epic, dynastic Wars of the Roses.

 

THIS VOLUME ALSO INCLUDES MORE THAN A HUNDRED PAGES OF EXCLUSIVE FEATURES:

 

• an original Introduction to Henry VI

• incisive scene-by-scene synopses and analyses with vital facts about the work

• commentary on past and current productions based on interviews with leading directors, actors, and designers

• photographs of key RSC productions

• an overview of Shakespeare’s theatrical career and chronology of his plays

 

Ideal for students, theater professionals, and general readers, these modern and accessible editions from the Royal Shakespeare Company set a new standard in Shakespearean literature for the twenty-first century.

Synopsis:

Displaying the bold vision and growing skill of a young playwright, these are Shakespeares first three history plays, covering some sixty tumultuous years of English history. Their pageantry, violence, and stirring speeches excite audiences with action as well as character, and midway through the final play in this trilogy, a shocking, clever, inimitably evil new voice is heard—that of Richard of Gloucester, destined to become Englands most fearsome and hated ruler of all time, Richard III.

From the Paperback edition.
