The Oxford Shakespeare: Henry V Summary


The Oxford Shakespeare: Henry V by William Shakespeare

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 brilliantly innovative 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 characterization. The first Folio text is radically rethought, making original use of the First Quarto (1600).

"Professor Taylor is a justly renowned editor. The textual editing is meticulous and sound, the footnotes clear and thorough. This edition will be useful for readers at all levels."--Ronald J. Boling, Lyon College
