The final play of what is considered to be Shakespeare's second tetralogy, Henry V celebrates the reign of the man whose long, troubled preparation for the throne (as young Price Hal) has transformed him into a triumphant ruler. In this play, the reader follows Henry's rise to power -- from exposing a conspiracy to assassinate him to his victory at the Battle of Agincourt in France. Henry V, the warrior-king, is a man of action and a great leader; he is a great symbol of the patriotism of England so alive during Shakespeare's time.
This edition is based on the 1914 Oxford edition, which ranks among the most authoritative of the 20th century.
