Henry VI, Part 1, often referred to as 1 Henry VI, is a history play by William in collaboration with Christopher Marlowe and Thomas Nashe-believed to have been written in 1591. It is set during the lifetime of King Henry VI of England.

King Henry VI, Part 1 book. Henry VI, Part I is considered by some to have been written AFTER Henry VI, Part II and Part III so I'm technically reading this one a bit early. Appendices on names, naming, and wordplay; casting; contemporary adaptations; and military hierarchy and the conduct of war in the age of Henry VI are also included. However, for narrative flow I am reading it first.

William Shakespeare, Edward Burns. Discussion of the dramatic structure created by the opposing figures of Talbot and Jeanne la Pucelle, and exploration of the critical.

A fresh look at a play usually regarded as the first component of a three-part historical epic, this edition argues that Henry VI Part 1 is a 'prequel', a freestanding piece that returns for ironic and dramatic effect to a story already familiar to its audience. The play's ingenious use of stage space is closely analysed, as is its manipulation of a series of setpiece combats to give a coherent syntax of action. Discussion of the dramatic structure created by the opposing figures of Talbot and Jeanne la Pucelle, and exploration of the critical controversies surrounding the figure of Jeanne, lead to a reflection on the nature of the history play as genre in the 1590s.

I have decided to read all of Shakespeare's theatrical works, and started recently with Henry VI part 2 and the Tempest. My thinking was I would start on the earliest, and the last works, and then meet in the middle to keep it interesting. This history play is one of his earliest works, if the experts are to be believed, and it shows in the writing to some extend. Not as advanced as Hamlet or Macbeth, or certainly the Tempest. But still, it's Shakespeare. Superb use of the language in the then evolving Early Modern English language. And how do you rate Shakespeare, really? I liked the plot. Henry VI Part 2 is bloody violent, with lots of heads rolling everywhere. And continued back-biting and dissension in the ranks of the upper classes, which are continually at war in France, if not with each other.

The horrors of the war of the roses, vaulting ambition of a series of dukes, a prayerful king and a businesswoman queen. This play has it all. It ends in such a depressing but true tone of the cyclical nature of the next series of murders and wars and for what!
Jek
As if in prophecy of the coming tide of communism or the alt-right Shakespeare's Cade is a brilliant portrayal of leader of the fickle mob, slaying intellectuals and spewing out high ideals.
X-MEN
I find it engaging. It exemplifies the Bard's usual depth of insight into the human condition, often condensed into a line or couplet, and his humor never disappoints Since it's one of his earlier Chronicle History plays, readers my compare it unfavorably with his later better-known plays. But his craftmanship shines through. It probably helps that I am in a discussion group, where our conversation enhances the experience of Shakespeare

Continuation and end of parts I and II. spoiler alert! The good guys win. First real introduction to Duke of Glouster, later Richard III. His speeches and actions are a clue to what happend Richard III.

I suggest reading parts 1 and 2 first... Actually, I suggest reading all the historical plays of Shakespeare. They are worth it.

I like this guy Shakespeare. I think he's gonna be big.
if you are a War of the Roses freak, the dialogue is breathtaking. huge battles are glossed over in favor of multiple "in your face" speeches.
