About the book:

Michael Hattaway (Editor) Shakespeare's three plays about the reign of Henry VI have been traditionally undervalued due to doubts about their authorship and because of the difficulties involved in determining their theatrical provenance. Recently, however, a series of outstanding productions by the Royal Shakespeare Company and others has demonstrated their theatrical vitality, and their conventions have been better understood in the light of new critical methods. This edition reveals The First Part of King Henry VI, which gives us Shakespeare's portrait of Joan of Arc,to be a successful play in its own exploratory style, and a necessary account of key events in the Hundred Years War without which the Wars of the Roses, featured in parts two and three, cannot be understood.
