Listener Opinions

    " This is obviously a 5 and by far my favorite so far of the histories, but I fear I have much more learning and rereading to do before I can officially change its ranking and fully articulate why. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 5/9/2011

    " My favorite Shakespeare play, it combines adventure, comedy, history, and tragedy together to form one of Shakespeare's broadest reaching plays. "

    " Good story though I didn't like Sir John! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Guy | 3/8/2011

    " This play was so dull that we actually gave up reading it in my Sophomore year High School English class because even Mr. McConnell was bored of it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mike | 2/28/2011

    " The small size and muddy color do not help this revamped Classics Illustrated (now packaged and marketed as a study cheat) succeed. Another problem, some characters look too much alike to be esaily distinguishable. A misfire. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 12/24/2010

    " I'll be honest--I saw Henry IV at the Globe Theater fall 2010 season and their production blew me away. The relationship between Hal and Falstaff had to be one of the most convincing on stage friendships I've ever seen. Marvelous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 12/20/2010

    " Falstaff... and his idea of death and honor is the most profound thing in the play. That's why the Queen loved his character so much. "

    " Was ok, had to read it for a college class. Not a big Shakespeare fan but it was ok :-) "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
