Most critics agree that the Henry VI plays were Shakespeare's first, or at least among the first. We've skipped them so far, because we're going in chronological order on the history plays. But, before we move on to the great plays like Hamlet and King Lear, let's wrap up our study of the earlier portion of Shakespeare's career.
So, your reading assignment for this week is Henry VI, Part I -- and, as you can probably guess, we'll be doing parts II and III in the following two weeks.
