No comment on play; it is a classic.

The actual document is very good since it is free. There are some misspellings due to the electronic transformation from paper to digital of the play. It is usually the first letter of the word that is wrong. Volunteers did the work on the Kindle edition, not a publishing firm, so perfection is not expected. However, there are not many errors.

In addition, there are lines in French and broken English with Google Translate, you can translate the French lines to see the full meaning. However, it is not necessary since the following English lines provide translation or context to understand the meaning of the French lines.

I wish there was foreword or notes in the product but you will need to pay for that service. I go to Wikipedia or literary note services for background on the play or if there is a section, I do not understand.

A couple of months back, I embarked on a personal improvement plan to read all of Shakespeare's plays. Having now pored through most of the history works, I would rank Henry V as one of the best, through Henry V 1 and 2 aren't far behind in terms of accessibility and thus likeability. In fact, I would read these two first before reading Henry V, as you get Prince Harry's elaborate back story, which makes for a better understanding some of the plot points in Henry V. And these two works include his association with Falstaff, arguably one of the most interesting of all secondary players in the Bard's pantheon of characters. By the way, I would also read Richard II, which is the back story behind Henry IV. Written in verse, with no prose. It's a beautiful work. But if you're short of time, Henry V is an easy one to tackle.

This is a play I chose to read for my Play Analysis paper for my Intro. to Drama class. The language is extremely powerful and memorable, the characters are compelling, and the play itself is exceptional. I definitely highly recommend it for anyone with any interest at all in drama. It is, without question, one of the greatest examples of the genre ever written. As to the edition itself, I found it to be greatly helpful in understanding the action in the play. It has a layout which places each page of the play opposite a page of notes, definitions, explanations, and other things needed to understand that page more thoroughly. While I didn't always need it, I was certainly glad to have it whenever I ran into a turn of language that was unfamiliar, and I definitely appreciated the scene-by-scene summaries. Really, if you want to or need to read Shakespeare, an edition such as this is really the way to go, especially until you get more accustomed to it.

What can I say......as a lover of all Shakespeare's works this is just a great historic story about Kings and their families and how disfunctional they are and were even back then and how grabbing the crown and keeping it any way you can seemed to be the order of the day. The Folgers books are so very well detailed. Not only the play itself but the explanation of words and situations on the page across from the scene itself helps even those new to Shakespeare better understand the old English expressions of that time. The life of Shakespeare is told in every book and comments on the play and reference books to look up if you are of a mind to pursue further knowledge of the play and the times. Nobody beats Folgers Library if you want to understand the best of Shakespeare.

Bizarre! The book contains no annotations. The text looks like a badly formatted computer printout. It ends with an eight-page general biography of Shakespeare, author unknown. In fact, the only attribute in the whole book is on the last page:

(The book was shipped to me on 13 September 2016.)
The text of the biography calls out 79 references, none of which are included in the book.
I can only shake my head and repeat: Bizarre!

Final piece in the Henry-tetrad, which may possibly be the weakest. It's certainly the weakest in content in my opinion. Henry V is by no means a weak character. His development is pictured nicely through the tetrad.

I felt there was a lot of superfluous material inserted to pad the play's length. Note also that Act 3 Scene 4 is completely in French [editing error?]. Some of the best material is presented in each act's opening prologue.

There are an excessive number of spelling errors in the Kindle version - many of the errors involve the letter 'p' being substituted for the letter 'b' at the beginning of words: bless, bridge, etc.

I obviously want overly enamored with this offering, but it was good to see Shakespeare's literary concept of a tetrad through to its completion.
