Four Great Histories from Shakespeare (Dover Thrift)

by William Shakespeare


Quick Overview

Beginning with the madcap adventures of Prince Hal in "Henry IV, ""Part I," through spectacular battles and tender love scenes in "Henry IV, Part II," and concluding with his reign as the ideal monarch in "Henry V, " Shakespeare masterfully combines comedy and actual events from 15th-century England in these 3 outstanding plays. Also includes the ever-villainous "Richard III."


Among the most studied, read, and admired works in world literature, Shakespeare's histories are unmatched for their dramatic brilliance, beauty of language, and profundity of thought. This convenient and affordable volume -- ideal for students and lovers of literature -- features four of the playwright's greatest historical works: Henry IV, Part 1 masterfully combines comedy and historic events in fifteenth-century England while chronicling the rebellion within Henry's kingdom and portraying events in the life of the profligate young Prince Hal. Henry IV, Part II, highlighted by spectacular battles and tender love scenes, witnesses Hal's maturation and the development of his leadership abilities. Henry V explores the means by which the "ideal monarch" invades France, wins at Agincourt, and claims the French throne. Richard III follows the scheming Duke of Gloucester as he systematically exterminates all those who thwart his plans to succeed to the English throne. Size 1.05" H x 8.2" L x 5.28" W, 422 pages
