Henry V

£6.99

Product description

"Henry V", the climax of Shakespeare's sequence of English history plays, is an inspiring, often comic celebration of a young warrior-king. But it is also a study of the costly exhilarations of war, and of the penalties as well as the glories of human greatness. Introducing this edition Gary Taylor shows how Shakespeare shaped his historical material, examines controversial critical interpretations, discusses the play's fluctuating fortunes in performance, and analyses the range and variety of Shakespeare's characterisation. The first Folio text is radically rethought, making original use of the First Quarto (1600).

Condition: The fly leaf has a stamp indicating that the book is "imperfect". This might refer to the fact that the dust jacket is a little scuffed or that the pages are often slightly discoloured. However, the overall condition is very good, with a clean textblock and sound binding.
