From the Royal Shakespeare Company - a modern, definitive edition of Shakespeare's profound exploration of a prince's coming of age and the rejection of old Jack Falstaff. With an expert introduction by Sir Jonathan Bate, this unique edition presents a historical overview of Henry IV Part II in performance, takes a detailed look at specific productions, and recommends film versions. Included in this edition are interviews with two leading directors and an actor- Michael Boyd, Adrian Noble and Michael Pennington - providing an illuminating insight into the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible. This edition also includes an essay on Shakespeare's career and Elizabethan theatre, and enables the reader to understand the play as it was originally intended - as living theatre to be enjoyed and performed.

Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare editions offer a fresh, accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Footnotes at the bottom of each page gloss unfamiliar items of vocabulary, paraphrase tricky meanings and uncover bawdy puns. There is a universe to be found in these annotations: the Renaissance world of power and fate, sex and death, language and philosophy.' - Times Educational Supplement
