"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This updated edition offers a strongly theatrical perspective on the origins of the play, and the history of its interpretation. The notes provide a thorough commentary on Shakespeare's transformation of his sources, and suggest alternative stagings. A new introductory section by Katharine Craik describes recent stage, film and critical interpretations.From the Publisher:
A play alive with escapades and action, comedy and history, Henry IV, Part One begins the transformation of the madcap Prince Hal into the splendid ruler King Henry. In it a rebellion against King and State is juxtaposed with another rebellion--the riotous misbehavior of Hal and his companions, principally Falstaff. A superbly funny liar, coward, lecher, and cheat, the larger-than-life character Falstaff turns this great historical drama into a masterpiece of counterpoint and design.
