Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. This rating is because the insert, while labeled as being for Henry IV, part 2, is actually the plot for Henry IV, part 1. So far the recording itself is fine. One person found this helpful. The second part of Henry IV resolves the problems of King Henry and Prince Hal and makes Prince Hal confront the choice he must make in following a more regal tone or being friends with Falstaff and his crew.

King Henry is dying and Prince Hal is proving himself as one of the greatest soldiers England has ever known. Falstaff spends most of the play waiting for his time in the sun when his best friend becomes the King of England.

He is drinking more than ever and bragging to everyone that will listen that he will soon be riding high because of his friendship. Prince Hal becomes a King and begins to act, as a royal prince should. I enjoyed this play as much as the first one and especially liked the maturity Prince Hal grows into in this play. All the while Henry Percy, known as Hotspur, is leading a rebellion. Prince Hal rises to the occasion, redeems himself on the battlefield, kills Hotspur but lets his friend Falstaff take the credit. But the rebellion isn't put down This is a sequel, plain and simple.

The plot is virtually the same as that of Henry IV part 1: He consorts with friends of dubious character, but then in time he fights to put down the rebellion against his father. But the sequel feels unnecessary, after all if Prince Hal redeemed himself in part 1, where is the dramatic motive to have him do so again in part 2? But this is a Shakespeare sequel. The end in part 1 was good natured and Falstaff remained friends with the prince. The prince and the king have reconciled, but the king's advisers still suspect the prince.

The Lord High Justice in particular, being fond of law and order, is not too happy at the thought of serving a king with a possibly criminal past. All ends well though.

The Lord High Justice is of course nervous upon Henry V's accession, but the king wisely keeps him in his position. Having served his father so well, to the point of courting his own displeasure and risking his life in order to uphold the law, Henry V predicts he will serve his new king with the same integrity.

And then for good measure, Henry V finally and fully repudiates Falstaff and his band.

But no, he is cast aside along with Prince Hal's youth. Vincent Poirier, Tokyo Note: Apparently, it considers the two parts of this play to be a set. As with the first part of 'Henry IV' Arkangel does an excellent job in portraying the different levels of 15th century society. While Part Two is generally not as dramatically coherent as Part One, this particular production is handled as well as the first one.

Geoffrey Bayldon is delightful as justice Shallow, while Pistol "the foul-mouth'dst rogue in England" is played by Edward de Souza as a bulging-eyed, spluttering madman, who rolls his 'r's like a highland Scot. Evie Mathieson brings a seductive sleaziness to the part of Doll Tearsheet, giving hilarious weight to the prince's line about "Saturn and Venus this year in conjunction. See all 6 reviews.

As the Chief Justice attempts to question Falstaff about a recent robbery, Falstaff insists on turning the subject of the conversation to the nature of the illness afflicting the King.

He then adopts the pretense of being a much younger man than the Chief Justice: He has a relationship with Doll Tearsheet , a prostitute, who gets into a fight with Ancient Pistol , Falstaff's ensign. After Falstaff ejects Pistol, Doll asks him about the Prince. Falstaff is embarrassed when his derogatory remarks are overheard by Hal, who is present disguised as a musician.

Falstaff tries to talk his way out of it, but Hal is unconvinced. When news of a second rebellion arrives, Falstaff joins the army again, and goes to the country to raise forces.

There he encounters an old school friend, Justice Shallow, and they reminisce about their youthful follies. Shallow brings forward potential recruits for the loyalist army: Mouldy, Bullcalf, Feeble, Shadow and Wart, a motley collection of rustic yokels. Falstaff and his cronies accept bribes from two of them, Mouldy and Bullcalf, not to be conscripted. In the other storyline, Hal remains an acquaintance of London lowlife and seems unsuited to kingship.

His father, King Henry IV is again disappointed in the young prince because of that, despite reassurances from the court. Another rebellion is launched against Henry IV, but this time it is defeated, not by a battle, but by the duplicitous political machinations of Hal's brother, Prince John. King Henry then sickens and appears to die. Hal, seeing this, believes he is King and exits with the crown. King Henry, awakening, is devastated, thinking Hal cares only about becoming King.

Hal convinces him otherwise and the old king subsequently dies contentedly. The two story-lines meet in the final scene, in which Falstaff, having learned from Pistol that Hal is now King, travels to London in expectation of great rewards. But Hal rejects him, saying that he has now changed, and can no longer associate with such people. The London lowlifes, expecting a paradise of thieves under Hal's governance, are instead purged and imprisoned by the authorities. At the end of the play, an epilogue thanks the audience and promises that the story will continue in a forthcoming play "with Sir John in it, and make you merry with fair Katharine of France; where, for all I know, Falstaff shall die of a sweat".

In fact, Falstaff does not appear on stage in the subsequent play, Henry V , although his death is referred to. The Merry Wives of Windsor does have "Sir John in it", but cannot be the play referred to, since the passage clearly describes the forthcoming story of Henry V and his wooing of Katherine of France. Falstaff does "die of a sweat" in Henry V , but in London at the beginning of the play.

His death is offstage, described by another character and he never appears. The epilogue also assures the playgoer that Falstaff is not based on the anti-Catholic rebel Sir John Oldcastle , for "Oldcastle died martyr, and this is not the man. Shakespeare was forced to change the name after complaints from Oldcastle's descendants.

While it is accepted by modern critics that the name was originally Oldcastle in Part 1, it is disputed whether or not Part 2 initially retained the name, or whether it was always "Falstaff". Shakespeare's primary source for Henry IV, Part 2 , as for most of his chronicle histories, was Raphael Holinshed 's Chronicles ; the publication of the second edition in provides a terminus a quo for the play.

Edward Hall 's The Union of the Two Illustrious Families of Lancaster and York appears also to have been consulted, and scholars have also supposed Shakespeare to have been familiar with Samuel Daniel 's poem on the civil wars. Henry IV, Part 2 is believed to have been written sometime between and It is possible that Shakespeare interrupted his composition of Henry IV, Part 2 somewhere around Act 3-Act 4, so as to concentrate on writing The Merry Wives of Windsor , which may have been commissioned for an annual meeting of the Order of the Garter , possibly the one held on 23 April The play was published in quarto the same year printing by Valentine Simmes.

Less popular than Henry IV, Part 1 , this was the only quarto edition. The play next saw print in the First Folio in The quarto's title page states that the play had been "sundry times publicly acted" before publication. Extant records suggest that both parts of Henry IV were acted at Court in —the records rather cryptically refer to the plays as Sir John Falstaff and Hotspur. A defective record, apparently to the Second part of Falstaff , may indicate a Court performance in Part 2 is generally seen as a less successful play than Part 1.

Its structure, in which Falstaff and Hal barely meet, can be criticised as undramatic.

Some critics believe that Shakespeare never intended to write a sequel, and that he was hampered by a lack of remaining historical material with the result that the comic scenes come across as mere "filler". However, the scenes involving Falstaff and Justice Shallow are admired for their touching elegiac comedy, and the scene of Falstaff's rejection can be extremely powerful onstage.
