Henry VI, part 2
Cambridge University Press, 1962
Part 1 of The War of the Roses. The Wars of the Roses was the name given to the trilogy of plays fashioned by Hall and Barton out of Richard III and the three parts of Henry VI. They argued that Richard III should never be presented singly: its proper context in the cycle is necessary in order to recreate the coherent historical awareness of the original Elizabethan audience.
