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.

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.

After overthrowing his predecessor, King Henry IV is acutely aware of the delicate political tensions he must balance to protect his throne. On one hand, he must rein in his son, the mischievous Prince Hal, who has left the court for a life of drinking and pleasure. At the same time, he must put down a rebellion of some of the most powerful families in England. Henry IV, Part I is the second of four connected plays about successive British monarchs, including Richard II, Henry IV, Part II, and Henry V. Known as “The Bard of Avon,” William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare’s works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare’s innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

Henry IV, Part One has been one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays since it was first produced, and was reprinted several times during the playwright’s lifetime. The play encompasses the tragic pathos of Hotspur’s death, the thrill of Hal’s battlefield valor, the intrigue of power politics, and the broad humor of tavern scenes. It has been performed as a play that celebrates England and engenders national pride, but also as a play that thumbs its nose at patriotism and notions of empire. This Broadview Edition provides a discussion of the play’s performance history, and both the introduction and footnotes encourage readers to think about the play as a performance text. The appendices gather a selection of historical sources and contemporary philosophical and political writings from England and Europe, and interleaved pages throughout the play provide illustrations and extended discussion of key phrases, plot points, and allusions. Further historical and performance materials are available on the Internet Shakespeare Editions website.

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.
