This anthology of contemporary criticism was written within the last 20 years, most within the last ten. It aims to problematize, rather than merely reflect, traditional methods and assumptions. The selection of essays cover Richard II, Henry IV (parts one and two), and Henry V. By representing some of the wide range of new theoretically-informed critical approaches, it offers the reader a genuine plurality of different critical and interpretative strategies - new historicism, feminism, deconstruction, marxism, linguistics, anthropology, social history, textual and bibliographical studies, and cultural-materialism.
