William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in April 1564, and his birth is traditionally celebrated on April 23. The facts of his life, known from surviving documents, are sparse. He was one of eight children born to John Shakespeare, a merchant of some standing in his community. William probably went to the King?s New School in Stratford, but he had no university education.

Henry VI, Part I is considered by some to have been written AFTER Henry VI, Part II and Part III so I'm technically reading this one a bit early. However, for narrative flow I am reading it first

Henry VI, Part I is considered by some to have been written AFTER Henry VI, Part II and Part III so I'm technically reading this one a bit early. However, for narrative flow I am reading it first. Along with the other two Henry VI plays, and along with Richard III it makes up Shakespeare's War of the Roses tetralogy. I wasn't super impressed. I mean this isn't Richard III or Hamlet or Macbeth. But this is young Shakespeare gearing up and there are flashes of brilliance and moments of perfection

I have decided to read all of Shakespeare's theatrical works, and started recently with Henry VI part 2 and the Tempest. My thinking was I would start on the earliest, and the last works, and then meet in the middle to keep it interesting. This history play is one of his earliest works, if the experts are to be believed, and it shows in the writing to some extend. Not as advanced as Hamlet or Macbeth, or certainly the Tempest. But still, it's Shakespeare. Superb use of the language in the then evolving Early Modern English language. And how do you rate Shakespeare, really? I liked the plot. Henry VI Part 2 is bloody violent, with lots of heads rolling everywhere. And continued back-biting and dissension in the ranks of the upper classes, which are continually at war in France, if not with each other.

The horrors of the war of the roses, vaulting ambition of a series of dukes, a prayerful king and a businesswoman queen. This play has it all. It ends in such a depressing but true tone of the cyclical nature of the next series of murders and wars and for what!
Vishura
As if in prophecy of the coming tide of communism or the alt-right Shakespeare's Cade is a brilliant portrayal of leader of the fickle mob, slaying intellectuals and spewing out high ideals.

I find it engaging. It exemplifies the Bard's usual depth of insight into the human condition, often condensed into a line or couplet, and his humor never disappoints Since it's one of his earlier Chronicle History plays, readers my compare it unfavorably with his later better-known plays. But his craftmanship shines through. It probably helps that I am in a discussion group, where our conversation enhances the experience of Shakespeare
Delirium
Continuation and end of parts I and II. spoiler alert! The good guys win. First real introduction to Duke of Glouster, later Richard III. His speeches and actions are a clue to what happend Richard III.

I suggest reading parts 1 and 2 first... Actually, I suggest reading all the historical plays of Shakespeare. They are worth it.

I like this guy Shakespeare. I think he's gonna be big.
if you are a War of the Roses freak, the dialogue is breathtaking. huge battles are glossed over in favor of multiple "in your face" speeches.
