This volume contains the tetralogy of plays--'Richard II', 'Henry IV' Parts 1 and 2 and 'Henry V'--written by Shakespeare c. 1595 to c. 1599. Each play possesses its own distinctive mood, tone and style, and together they inhabit the turbulent period of change from the usurpation to the throne of Richard II by Bolingbroke to the triumph--some would say triumphalism--of heroic kingship of Henry V.
