This edition celebrates King Henry VI Part 2 as one of the most
exciting and dynamic plays of the English renaissance theatre, with
its exploration of power politics and social revolution and its
focus on the relationship between divine justice and sin. An
extensive discussion of performance history traces the play's
progress on stage from abridgement and adaptation to full
historical epic. A survey of criticism discusses the wide range of
responses provoked by the play's handling of its historical theme,
and concludes by focusing on the element of burlesque in the
attempted social revolution portrayed.
