Summary Tracing the fortunes of the English monarchy during periods of widespread intrigue, treachery, and violence, Shakespeare's Histories center on the problem of power - its use and misuse, its prerogatives and responsibilities, its glittering rewards and grim reckoning. The critical essays in this volume consider the plays both individually and as part of a dramatic sequence. Included are: The Elizabethan World Order, Angel with Horns: The Unity of Richard III, What is Shakespeare's Henry VIII About?, and The Historical Pattern from Richard II to Henry V.
