More enjoyable than I thought it would be. York is funny. ( )

This installment of the Henry VI trilogy turns up the body count as various factions jostle for power. Duke Humphrey of Gloucester, the King’s uncle and the protector of the realm, is seen as having too much power, so he is dispatched with extreme prejudice. The Queen’s very good friend the Duke of Suffolk is next. And then John Cade, who claims to be descended of the Mortimers, stages an uprising. And THEN the Duke of York, who was managing the King’s troops in Ireland, decides to stake his own claim to the throne. All seem to agree that Henry is more of a preacher than a prince… will he survive this treason?

It took me more than five months to finish this play (March to August 2021), which is at least partly attributable to the state of my brain during the global pandemic. But the play itself is a bit hard to get through: lots of talking heads and opportunities for the mind to wander. I think I have to watch The Hollow Crown again to get more people to hold in my head before proceeding to Henry VI, Part 3. ( )

Henry VI, Part 2 is infinitely better than Part 1 with numerous themes that can be explored in depth and the pace of a real page-turner. It ranks in my book as one of Shakespeare's best and most interesting works.

The play deals with the reign of Henry VI, whose weak leadership is confronted by the political intrigues of all of those around him. He is surrounded by a real nest of vipers with everyone against everyone. The play is very political in nature and finds an echo in our own political turbulence today. Looking back at Shakespeare's time, it also has a lot to say about the evolution of law, evidence and trials.

The Folger Library e-book is wonderful with convenient access to footnotes. This edition also contains better than average essays about the play including thought-provoking summaries of the books included in the section on Further Reading. ( )

I would've liked more Jack Cade. ( )

Listened to LibriVox full cast audiobook & read in Kindle omnibus "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare"

Not quite as compelling to me as Part 1 but still much less difficult than I expect of Shakespeare. And now I know the context of the famous line "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."! ( )

As by your high imperial majesty

I had in charge at my depart for France,

As procurator to your excellence,

To marry Princess Margaret for your grace,

So, in the famous ancient city, Tours,

In presence of the Kings of France and Sicil,

The Dukes of Orleans, Calaber, Bretagne and Alencon,

Seven earls, twelve barons and twenty reverend bishops,

I have perform'd my task and was espoused:

And humbly now upon my bended knee,

In sight of England and her lordly peers,

Deliver up my title in the queen

To your most gracious hands, that are the substance

Of that great shadow I did represent;

The happiest gift that ever marquess gave,

The fairest queen that ever king received.
