During Shakespeare's lifetime, Henry IV was his most popular play. Today, Sir John Falstaff still towers above Shakespeare's other comic inventions. This edition considers the play in the context of various critical approaches, offers a history of the play in performance from Shakespeare's time to ours, and provides useful information on its historical background. Readers will also find detailed commentary on individual words and phrases, and selections from Shakespeare's sources.

`The Oxford Shakespeare is without doubt an important publishing event ... a complete rethinking of Shakespeare scholarship, textual, critical, and stage history all to be considered afresh with the aid of the most up-to-date knowledge and research resources ... a workman-like survey of most of what has been known and thought about the play up to the time of going to press' Joan Rees, University of Birmingham, Review of English Studies, Vol. 38 No. 155 `Professor Bevington has compiled in this attractively produced volume the best critical edition of Henry IV currently available' Michael G. Brennan, University of Leeds, Notes and Queries
