Angered by the loss of his son in battle, the Earl of Northumberland supports another rebellion against King Henry IV, bringing the country to the brink of civil war. Sick and weary, the old King sends out his forces, including the unruly Sir John Falstaff, to meet the rebels. But as the conflict grows, he must also confront a more personal problem - how to make his reprobate son Prince Hal aware of the duties he must bear, as heir to the throne.

Henry IV, Part 2 is the only Shakespeare play that is a “sequel,” in the modern sense, to an earlier play of his. Like most sequels, it repeats many elements from the previous work, Henry IV, Part 1. This play again puts on stage Henry IV’s son, Prince Hal, who continues to conceal his potential greatness by consorting with tavern dwellers, including the witty Sir John Falstaff. As in Part 1, Prince Hal and Falstaff seek to best each other in conversation, while Falstaff tries to ingratiate himself with Hal and Hal disdains him. Part 2 adds some fresh characters, the rural justices Shallow and Silence and Shallow’s household. Political rebellion, while important to the plot, does not loom as large as in Part 1. There are no glorious champions; combat is replaced by deception, cunning, and treachery. The authoritative edition of Henry IV, Part 2 from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes: -The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference -Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation -Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play -Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play -Scene-by-scene plot summaries -A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases -An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language -An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play -Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books -An annotated guide to further reading Essay by A.

Henry IV, Part Two as a sequel to or continuation of Henry IV, Part One is disappointing. The resolution of the uprising is anticlimactic, and the Falstaff scenes are not comparable to those of Part One. The bawdy is substantially increased with, unfortunately, a lessening of the actual comedy. Falstaff lovers probably are not disappointed, but those of us with higher expectations may experience a letdown. Perhaps this points us toward The Merry Wives of Windsor, itself less than totally satisfying.

"Heinrich der Vierte" vor der Burg der "Markgräfin Mathilde von Toskana" war er bei jenem Maskenzug, bei dem Belcredi, sein Rivale um die Gunst der wirklichen Matilda, Mar-chesa Spina, für seinen Sturz vom Pferd gesorgt hatte. Als er aus langem Koma erwacht, ist er es immer noch, bleibt es, lässt seine Umgebung zum kaiserlichen Hofstaat werden, zwingt alle in sein groteskes Spiel, jähre-, jahrzehntelang. Lebt er im Wahn, täuscht er ihn vor? Kann er sich vor der unerträglichen Wirklichkeit schützen, versteckt hinter dieser Maske, verkrochen in einer fiktiven Zeit? Kann man ihn herausreißen aus dieser makabren Scheinexistenz? Matilda und Belcredi kommen mit einem neuen Arzt, eine Schocktherapie wird ihn erlösen: Matildas junge Tochter, Ebenbild ihrer selbst vor zwanzig Jahren, soll ihm, dem Gealterten, leibhaftig als die toskanische Markgräfin des Maskenzugs aus einem Wandbild entgegentreten, "Wirklichkeit" gewordenes Traumbild seiner Liebe. Er bricht aus, vor Kummer und Zorn über das Spiel, das man mit ihm treibt, reißt das Mädchen an sich. Belcredi stürzt dazwischen, - da ersticht er ihn, der sein Unglück verschuldet, ihn vom Leben ferngehalten hat - und erkennt entsetzt, dass nun aus der Fiktion schreckliche Wahrheit geworden ist, dass er, nun für immer, Heinrich der Vierte sein wird und bleiben muss.
