The editor takes a broad look at the different meanings which have been attributed to "King Henry V", through a discussion of its various critical and theatrical interpretations. Craik discusses the choices made in presenting an edited text, and enables readers to think about what their own decisions might be. Source material is accessibly presented with the text in the notes. Illustrations record production history on stage and screen, and the text also includes maps, a genealogical table and a doubling chart.

Review:

"Another in this superior series that clearly should be the texts of choice...This volume, edited by Andrew Gurr, has approximately sixty pages of introduction, each page of which is a joy to read." Stages "This introduction includes the most lucid discussion of the Salic-law problem I have come across...The notes to an edition are probably what most people turn to an edition for and they are this edition's strongest feature. They are detailed and responsive...if this edition is used as a classroom text, the caliber of Gurr's sprightly glosses will greatly elevate the level of discussion; where it is not the text assigned to the students, whatever instructor covertly consults Gurr's glosses is sure to appear omniscient." Claire E. McEachern, Shakespeare Quarterly "...when he is analyzing Shakespeare's use of sources and the language and actions of the characters, Gurr is careful, objective, balanced, and often incisive...excellent critical examinations..." William B. Long, TEXT: Transactions of the Society for Textual Scholarship
