The stirring continuation of the themes begun in Henry IV, Part One again pits a rebellion within the State and that master of misrule, Falstaff, against the maturing of Prince Hal. Alternating scenes between bawdy tavern and regal court, between revelry and politics, Shakespeare probes at the sources, uses, and responsibilities of power as an old king dies and a young king must choose between a ruler's solemn duty and a merry but dissipated friend, Falstaff. The play represents Shakespeare at the peak of his maturity in writing historical drama and comedy. From the Paperback edition.

Henry IV, Part One is a rich play: rich in drama and intrigue, political machinations, and comedy. Not only does Prince Harry (Hal) redeem himself in his father's eyes, he also satisfies audience expectations. One important sub-plot running throughout the play is the questionable ascension of Henry IV to the throne. Additionally, one cannot ignore the comparison between Prince Harry and Hotspur (Harry Monmouth). Finally there is the dominant character of Falstaff, larger than a life portrait which no artist could possibly capture. One might cavil at Falstaff's disregard for truth, for his penchant for lying, for his pusillanimity which approaches and even encompasses true cowardice. Yet even acknowledging the truth of these charges, over the centuries audiences have taken Falstaff to their hearts, perhaps seeing him as an avatar of weaknesses they, too, possess. Thus, despite (maybe because of) his personal flaws, audiences have accepted Falstaff without reservation, sharing his misadventures and laughing at his peccadillos, allowing Falstaff to endure as one of Shakespeare's titanic creations, truly a man for all seasons.

More troubled and troubling than 'King Henry IV Part 1', 'King Henry IV Part 2' continues the story of King Henry's decline and Hal's reform. Though Part 2 echoes the structure of the earlier play, its is a darker and more unsettling world, in which even Falstaff's revelry is more tired and cynical, and the once-merry Hal sloughs off his tavern companions to become King Henry V. Though probably less performed and written about, critics have nevertheless praised the play for its mature style. This text, based on the 1600 First Quarto, is supplemented by additional sequences from the 1623 First Folio.

Author: William Shakespeare
Written between 1596 and 1597, Henry IV Part One represents Shakespeare's increasingly mature talent in staging the history of the early Tudor monarchy. Midway in the cycle of Shakespeare's History Plays, which begin with Richard II and ultimately culminate in his last play, Henry VIII, Henry IV Part One tells the story of the troubled reign of Henry IV following his deposition of Richard II. The historical action revolves around the attempt by Henry Percy (known as Hotspur) to overthrow Henry at the Battle of Shrewsbury. However, over half the play deals with the transformation of Henry's profligate son,
