More troubled and troubling than King Henry IV Part 1, the play continues the story of King Henry's decline and Hal's reform. Though Part 2 echoes the structure of the earlier play, it 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.
James C. Bulman's authoritative edition provides a wealth of incisive commentary on this complex history play.
James C. Bulman is Henry B. and Patricia Bush Tippie Professor of English at Allegheny College, USA and was President of the Shakespeare Association of America (1998-99).
