About the Authors
  • This is the first stage history of Shakespeare's King Henry V to cover the play's theatrical life since 1599. Staging this play is a political act, and the substantial Introduction traces its theatrical interventions into conflicts from the Napoleonic Wars to Vietnam and the Falklands. The stage and film history raises interpretative questions--is Henry V an epic of English nationalism, a knowing and cynical piece of power politics, or an anti-war manifesto? The volume also includes the play text, illustrations and detailed footnotes about major performances.

    • An edition of the play which emphasizes performance history
    • Useful for scholars, actors and directors
    • Video productions of the two films of this play (Olivier and Branagh) are widely available and make it a popular play to teach in the classroom at undergraduate level
