Review:
A new approach to critical analysis is offered by this interpretation of the play as an exploitative sequel issued in response to the popularity of the First Part, which was itself a remake of an old, non-Shakespearean play.

Book Description

Review:
The stirring continuation of the themes begun in Henry IV, Part One again pits a rebellion within the State and that master of misrule, Falstaff, against the maturing of Prince Hal. Alternating scenes between bawdy tavern and regal court, between revelry and politics, Shakespeare probes at the sources, uses, and responsibilities of power as an old king dies and a young king must choose between a ruler's solemn duty and a merry but dissipated friend, Falstaff. The play represents Shakespeare at the peak of his maturity in writing historical drama and comedy.
