    Book details

More troubled and troubling than King Henry IV Part 1, the play continues the story of King Henrys decline and Hals reform. Though Part 2 echoes the structure of the earlier play, it is a darker and more unsettling world, in which even Falstaffs 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's edition of Shakespeare's King Henry IV, Part 2 includes an extremely informative introduction which breathes new life into this often-neglected play. Bulman expertly navigates the difficult textual terrain--neither the Quarto (which appeared in two issues) nor the Folio provides a fully authoritative copy text--explaining the rationale for his decisions in a detailed but accessible appendix." - Studies in English Literature 1500-1900

    I think that the Arden Shakespeare editions are the best for reading Shakespeare and this is no exception.
