The story follows on from that of Shakespeare’s Richard II and begins with Hotspur’s battle at Homildon against the Douglas late in 1402 and ends with the defeat of the rebels at Shrewsbury in the middle of 1403. Within those boundaries are many familiar themes; having ascended to the throne, Henry begins to doubt the loyalty of his friends and amplifies the power of his enemies. But Henry must also move to quell those who might usurp him.

About the Author

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.
