Product Description

The last of Shakespeare's plays about English history, Henry VIII tells the story of a monarchy in crisis, as noblemen battle and the people are almost at a point of rebellion. The sly Cardinal Wolsey, the resounding defense of Katherine's marriage by herself, and the questionable ethics of Henry himself make for one of Shakespeare's most intriguing plays.
This Pelican Edition contains a note on the theatrical world, the texts of Shakespeare, and an introduction. 126 pages, softcover.
