Each play in this book possesses its own distinctive mood, tone and style, and together they inhabit the turbulent period of change from the usurpation of the throne of Richard II by Bolingbroke to the triumph - some would say triumphalism - of heroic kingship in Henry V. Each play is accompanied by notes and an introduction, making this edition of particular value to students and theatre-goers.
