About this title

Synopsis:

The Quarto text of King Henry V is of unique importance. It has the authority of being transcribed by actors in Shakespeare's own company as a record of their first performances of the play at the Globe in 1599. Half as long as the 1623 First Folio version, it represents a practical staging text that streamlined the script supplied by Shakespeare. Andrew Gurr examines each variant from the Folio text in detail, shedding new light on what happened to scripts that the Shakespeare company bought from their resident playwright.

Review:

"Gurr's contentions will ignite interest among all serious readers of Shakespeare and may detonate a barrage of scholarly responses. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty and for professional collections." Choice

"The sixth release in Cambridge's useful books on the early quartos, this volume prompts fresh regard for what the quartos have to tell. Gurr's content will ignite interest among all serious readers of Shakespeare and may detonate a barrage of scholarly responses. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty and for professional collections." Choice
