In Henry IV, Part 1, the King is in a doubly ironic position. His rebellion against Richard II was successful, but now he himself is beset by rebels, led by the charismatic Harry Hotspur. The King's son, Prince Hal, seems to be more concerned with the pleasures of the tavern world and the company of the fat rogue, Falstaff, than with concerns of state. Eventually, however, Hal proves a courageous foe of the rebels. In Henry IV, Part 2, the King is ailing, Falstaff is ageing, and the kingdom itself, where rebellion is still rife, seems diseased or debilitated. The comedy has a melancholy undertone, and the politics verge on the Machiavellian. Eventually, the resourceful Hal, inheriting the crown as Henry V, must prove that he can uphold justice in the realm. Here Shakespeare demonstrates a mastery of thematic complexity and subtlety, and shows the price in human terms that may be exacted by political success.

Henry IV, Part One has been one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays since it was first produced, and was reprinted several times during the playwright’s lifetime. The play encompasses the tragic pathos of Hotspur’s death, the thrill of Hal’s battlefield valor, the intrigue of power politics, and the broad humor of tavern scenes. It has been performed as a play that celebrates England and engenders national pride, but also as a play that thumbs its nose at patriotism and notions of empire. This Broadview Edition provides a discussion of the play’s performance history, and both the introduction and footnotes encourage readers to think about the play as a performance text. The appendices gather a selection of historical sources and contemporary philosophical and political writings from England and Europe, and interleaved pages throughout the play provide illustrations and extended discussion of key phrases, plot points, and allusions. Further historical and performance materials are available on the Internet Shakespeare Editions website.

Henry IV, Part One is a rich play: rich in drama and intrigue, political machinations, and comedy. Not only does Prince Harry (Hal) redeem himself in his father's eyes, he also satisfies audience expectations. One important sub-plot running throughout the play is the questionable ascension of Henry IV to the throne. Additionally, one cannot ignore the comparison between Prince Harry and Hotspur (Harry Monmouth). Finally there is the dominant character of Falstaff, larger than a life portrait which no artist could possibly capture. One might cavil at Falstaff's disregard for truth, for his penchant for lying, for his pusillanimity which approaches and even encompasses true cowardice. Yet even acknowledging the truth of these charges, over the centuries audiences have taken Falstaff to their hearts, perhaps seeing him as an avatar of weaknesses they, too, possess. Thus, despite (maybe because of) his personal flaws, audiences have accepted Falstaff without reservation, sharing his misadventures and laughing at his peccadillos, allowing Falstaff to endure as one of Shakespeare's titanic creations, truly a man for all seasons.
