The First Part of King Henry the Fourth

Front Cover
Penguin Books, 1957 - 139 pages
After the murder of Richard II, Henry assumes the throne, and is immediately confronted with rebellion by Owen Glendower, Douglas of Scotland, Northumberland and his son Hotspur. The play also treats the moral development of the king's son Hal (later Henry V) as he appears to waste his youth in London taverns in the company of the irresponsible Sir John Falstaff.
