A fresh look at a play usually regarded as the first component of a three-part historical epic, this edition argues that Henry VI Part 1 is a 'prequel', a freestanding piece that returns for ironic and dramatic effect to a story already familiar to its audience. The play's ingenious use of stage space is closely analysed, as is its manipulation of a series of setpiece combats to give a coherent syntax of action. Discussion of the dramatic structure created by the opposing figures of Talbot and Jeanne la Pucelle, and exploration of the critical controversies surrounding the figure of Jeanne, lead to a reflection on the nature of the history play as genre in the 1590s.

Book Description:

John Dover Wilson's New Shakespeare, published between 1921 and 1966, became the classic Cambridge edition of Shakespeare's plays and poems until the 1980s. The series, long since out-of-print, is now reissued. Each work contains a lengthy and lively introduction, main text, and substantial notes and glossary.

About the Author:

Edward Burns is Senior Lecturer in the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Liverpool. His publications include Restoration Comedy: Crises of Desire and Identity, Character: Acting and Being on the Pre-Modern Stage, Shakespeare's Richard III (forthcoming), an edition of Five British Romantic Plays (with Paul Baines), and a collection of commissioned essays entitled Reading Rochester.
