This Week's Reading Assignment

We've already started Shakespeare's second tetralogy of English history plays, the "Henriad" cycle that includes Richard II, the two parts of Henry IV and Henry V. So, let's move right along to Henry IV, Part I, the debut of the inimitable Falstaff and perhaps Shakespeare's most popular history play.

As always, you have until noon next Sunday, when I'll post a few comments to start the discussion. Happy reading!

  1. This play is some kind of wonderful.

    Re-read it in one sitting (4 hours) after finishing Richard II.
