"Another in this superior series that clearly should be the texts of choice...This volume, edited by Andrew Gurr, has approximately sixty pages of introduction, each page of which is a joy to read." Stages "This introduction includes the most lucid discussion of the Salic-law problem I have come across...The notes to an edition are probably what most people turn to an edition for and they are this edition's strongest feature. They are detailed and responsive...if this edition is used as a classroom text, the caliber of Gurr's sprightly glosses will greatly elevate the level of discussion; where it is not the text assigned to the students, whatever instructor covertly consults Gurr's glosses is sure to appear omniscient." Claire E. McEachern, Shakespeare Quarterly "...when he is analyzing Shakespeare's use of sources and the language and actions of the characters, Gurr is careful, objective, balanced, and often incisive...excellent critical examinations..."

What strikes me most is the play's faceted nature. In *Henry V*, Shakespeare is like a jeweler, cutting through the action of war -- the true subject of this play -- to fashion an... Read morePublished on July 31 2000 by Mark K. Jensen
Required to read Henry for my AP English Language class, I came into the play with a bias. I honestly felt that it would be a boring political play. I was utterly wrong! Read morePublished on June 29 1999
