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.
The Folger Shakespeare Library edition contains full explanatory notes on facing pages, scene-by-scene plot summaries, a key to famous lines and phrases, and introduction and essay by an outstanding scholar.
296 pages, softcover.

Author Bio

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—their older daughter Susanna and the twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent, not in Stratford, but in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright, but as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare is thought to have retired from the stage and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616.
