Quick Overview

Cambridge The Second Part of King Henry VI

Shakespeare's plays about the reign of Henry VI written at the beginning of his career were for a long time undervalued. This was because of doubts about their authorship and because of the difficulties of determining their theatrical provenance. However a series of outstanding productions by the Royal Shakespeare Company and other companies has demonstrated their theatrical vitality their conventions have been better understood in the light of new critical methods and their innovative and sceptical questioning of Elizabethan orthodoxies has been viewed in the light of revisionist readings of the history of Shakespeare's own times. This 1991 edition of The Second Part of King Henry VI takes account of discoveries concerning Shakespeare's early career and pays particular attention to recent theatrical history relating readings generated by modern performances to ideologically positioned accounts of the history and politics of Shakespeare's age.
