About this product
- DescriptionWith the untimely death of England's great soldier-king, Henry V, the crown passes to his young and inexperienced son. While the bles quarrel among themselves and compete for influence over the new monarch, the French seize the opportunity to reclaim their former territories from English possession. The success of the French armies rests upon an unlikely leader: the peasant girl Joan La Pucelle, kwn to history as Joan of Arc. The first of three plays based on the life of the England's 15th-century monarch, this historical drama chronicles the conflict between the York and Lancaster factions that led to the War of the Roses. Each part of the trilogy is self-contained and can be appreciated without kwledge of the others. Vivid characterization, dark comedy, and powerful language combine for a memorable portrait of a country devastated by civil war.
- Author BiographyHe was not of an age, but for all time, declared Ben Jonson of his contemporary William Shakespeare (1564-1616). Jonson's praise is especially prescient, since at the turn of the 17th century Shakespeare was but one of many popular London playwrights and none of his dramas were printed in his lifetime. The reason so many of his works survive is because two of his actor friends, with the assistance of Jonson, assembled and published the First Folio edition of 1623.
