Shakespeare's "Henry IV: Part Two" really doesn't live up to the marvelous story told in part one. I read somewhere that both parts were originally a single play and Shakespeare broke it into tw. .I don't know whether that's true but I find it fairly easy to believe. There isn't much of a story here- the battle is over and everyone is just waiting for Henry III to expire so his son can take over. It's pretty slow moving and not terribly interesting. shanaqui 1Go to shanaqui 1's profile, opens in a new window.
