        William Shakespeare baptised 26 April 1564 was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world s pre eminent dramatist He is often called England s national poet and the Bard of Avon or simply The Bard His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford upon Avon Scholars believe that he died on his fifty second birthday, coinciding with St George s Day.At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain s Men, later known as the King s Men He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later Few records of Shakespeare s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613 His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare s.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare s genius, and the Victorians hero worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called bardolatry In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life Shakespeare s writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589 There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.

    1. I marvel at how smoothly this play enhance the cyclical nature of history, how the succession of kings, of fathers and sons, mimics a pattern of fall and redemption that is repeated in Richard II, Henry IV, and Henry V, and accordingly, the evolution of styles echoes this pattern of unrestrained chaos, reestablished order and promised posterity.In Henry IV, part one, there is an unmistakable jesting tone in Mr. John Falstaff’s famous soliloquies, both sage and villain, which are characterized [...]


    2. Starring the original frat brother, Prince Hal—the slumming trust-fund kid soon to turn prodigal son—this play reads like some great lost Scorsese mob picture. Whether through insight or just proximate empathy, Shakespeare reveals the English nobility for the relentlessly combative, barely-beyond-the-Huns people they really were. For all the Bardolaters' fascination with Falstaff (who, according to Mark Van Doren, "understands everything and so is never serious"—now there's a profound stat [...]


    3. I love this whole series of historical plays by William Shakespeare, especially through Henry V. I am still reading Henry IV, Part 2 but it is hard to find the right edition of a play on .


    4. There's matter in these sighs, these profound heaves. You must translate: 'tis fit we understand them. (Hamlet, 4.1.1-2)


    5. La lunghezza dell'Enrico IV, due parti, cinque atti ciascuna, non è dovuta tanto alla Storia in sé, particolarmente semplice (Enrico IV, dopo aver usurpato Riccardo II, affronta dei nuovi moti di ribellione, mentre il figlio, Harry, passa da ubriacone a degno erede al trono), quanto più ai mille rivoli in cui si snoda. In particolare, l'imponenza dell'Enrico IV risiede nella sua duplicità. Da una parte vi è la messa in scena storica e dall'altra vi è Falstaff e la sua commedia umana.Quando [...]


    6. Part 1: I would like to say i did or didn't enjoy the plot but i think, in Shakespeare, you have the book more than once. From what i understood, though, i didn't like too much of it. Too many characters. The only one that caught my attention was Falstaff and his comedic interventions.Part 2: Same problem as the 1st Part, although i think that you can understand this Part's plot better than the 1st Part. Still, i liked the attitude Hal took at the end of the book and Falstaff, once again, made m [...]


    7. Henry IV, Part 1This was a surprising play. It started out rather boring for me, but towards the 4th and 5th acts, it got a lot better. I suppose this was due to the need for exposition before action. I'm glad I was required to read this for school, otherwise I would never have read it. This was an interesting view of British royalty vs. rebels. I loved Hotspur :)


    8. اسخف مسرحيات ويليام شكسبير على الاطلاق واكثرها كآبة واثارة للملل والسأممسرحية ثقيلة جدا والاحداث تسير فيها ببطء شديد و كثرة الابطال العددية (كثافتهم) من اهم نقاط الضعف بهذه المسرحية السمجةمسرحية الملك هنرى الرابع لشكسبير هى اسخف ما قرأت من الادب الانجليزى عموما بحياتى.



    9. Poor format & false advertising! No free audiobook!The advertised free audio book simply takes you to audible sign up! Not free WITH purchase!! Very unhappy with this version!


    10. King Henry IV part 1 was simultaneously actually quite enjoyable to read and also really weird. For starters, it was just freaking hilarious, like I couldn't take it seriously when the tavern scenes came on. There were, however, a few great quotes among the um. plain weird ones. Um, yeah, it was a different side of Shakespeare that I thoroughly enjoyed in all its hilarious weirdness. For example:"Death hath not struck so fat a deer today" - Hal (view spoiler)[at a fake-dead Falstaff (hide spoile [...]


    11. In part 1, a play in itself, Henry has taken the throne but is uneasy since he usurped it from Richard II. He wants to go on crusade to unify his kingdom but has too much trouble with rebels on his borders (Scotland and Wales) and within from the Percy family and its firebrand son Hotspur. His own son, Harry, who will be Henry V, is carousing with Falstaff, which troubles him greatly.But when battle is joined against the rebels, Harry shows his stuff and kills Hotspur. Falstaff also shows his st [...]


    12. This is one of the historical fiction play I've read by Shakespeare, it's fast, funny, historical and portrays the complicated father son relationship with much psychological depth. There are plenty of characters perfectly suit for dramatic and comic effect which makes the play well rounded. With no fear Shakespeare guide, it helped me understand the old English. Overtime, I was compelled to read the original play and made my own interpretation and understanding of the text. Really pleased I mad [...]


    13. The story of the relationship between Hal/Henry V and Falstaff. Dr. Bloom argues persuasively that Falstaff is one the most fully realized characters in English literature. The other is Hamlet. The interplay between Hal and Falstaff is the stuff of legends. It is indeed presumptuous to try to judge the plays. One can only begin to understand the nature of the human. It bears rereading and much thought. One feels that one has been in the presence of greatness.


    14. In keeping with my current obsession with the Wars of the Roses, I read these 2 plays for some Elizabethan era insight. Henry V is the real star of these two plays, not surprisingly, since he was still fondly remembered in Shakespeares time for his amazing victory at Agincourt. I love Falstaff , I guess everyone does, and found these very informative and enjoyable. Love the bard!!


    15. Falstaff has to be greatest character of all time. Harold Bloom understands this and accompanies a fuller understanding as he becomes your portly guide into the world of Fasltaff. A world where we all need to find and embrace our inner characters. Even if we are the worst scum in the world then BE the worst scum in the world but do it with such a panache that it looks marvelous.


    16. I LOVED how they had the book formatted. I could read Shakespeare the way it would be written nowadays!!! I mean, I still like reading old-fashioned Shakespeare, but it was interesting for me to try it out that way. Less work for the brain. So for those of you anti-shakespeare book lovers, try this out!


    17. Jak jsem starší, tím víc mám ráda Shakespeara. A hlavně tedy historické hry, i když to v literatuře bylo to, co profesorka zmínila, aby nám pak mohla zbytek hodiny zbytečně dopodrobna rozebírat Hamleta. Ale tohle je tak neskutečně dobré, vtipné i smutné zároveň.




    18. Very good book. The No Fear Shakespeare series makes it much easier to read and understand his plays. I would never have guessed part two was so dirty without the translation.





    19. Not my thing at all. I just couldn't get into the story and the characters were just not fun to read about.
