Cette édition est très belle et remplie d'illustrations (gravures et photos). Le livre contient, en plus du texte :
- une longue introduction, parlant entre autre de la politique ou du langage à l'époque de Shakespeare,
- plusieurs pages de notes et explications,
- des appendices (analyses textuelles, tableaux généalogiquees...)
C'est une oeuvre très complète.

J'ai étudié ce livre à l'université, l'intrigue est toujours très actuelle, comme avec presque toute les pièces de Shakespeare, et l'édition est très bien car il y a énormément de notes pour faciliter la compréhension.

One of Shakespeare's great histories in a most helpful and rich edition 21 avril 2006
Par Craig Matteson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This play is the first of four histories involving the rise of Harry Bolingbroke into King Henry IV (parts I & II) and then his son, Prince Hal, into Henry V. These four plays are always popular with audiences and have many virtues, although they are quite different in affect and theatrical means. This play is full of poetry and carefully composed verse. The two Henry IV plays are blessed the Falstaff's glorious prose and Henry V has its own interesting dualities in Prince Hal finally becoming the King - are his comments sincere or full or irony or is he blind to the irony of his own making? But those are other plays.

As this play begins, the York line is in power as Richard II who came to power as a child. Henry Bolingbroke is the son of the Duke of Lancaster (John of Gaunt) and is also the Duke of Hereford as the Earl of Derby. Richard shows through his actions and weak decisions (both weak in strength and weak in acumen) that his hold on the throne is open to challenge. When Bolingbroke decides to make the challenge is open to debate, but he picks a fight with Mowbray and both end up banished instead. This causes a tremendous rift with the Duke of Lancaster and when he dies, Richard decides to seize Lancaster's possessions in Ireland instead of letting them pass to Bolingbroke.

Since Bolingbroke is now the new Duke of Lancaster he decides he is no longer the banished Duke of Hereford and returns to England. A number of rumors and challenges lead to Bolingbroke taking power and when Richard returns from Ireland his loss of his kingdom is accomplished without his realizing it. The rest of the play is the fall of Richard and the rise of Henry IV with the attendant strain on the loyalties of the peers.

Shakespeare's genius for verse and the exposition of character is blazingly manifest in this play and that is one of the reasons for its popularity and the walls of books written about this play. Richard's inwardness and self-absorption is quite communicated to us quite differently than Henry's boldness and aggression. The way the peers show their divided loyalties, anger, fear, and duplicity is also wonderfully done.

This Arden edition is from the third series and has some of the features of more modern scholarship. It is also almost exhaustively noted and resourced. The reader of this edition is given more than 150 pages of introductory material on the origins, language, meaning, and performance history of the play and can choose which to read and which to leave for another time. The notes on each page of text include notes to help the reader understand the text, but also notes on the history versus the play and Shakespeare's sources (such as Holinshead). There are longer notes at the back, and a textual analysis in the first appendix, a doubling chart for performance in appendix two, and a genealogical table for the third appendix (very useful). There is also a list of reference works and an index.

I am a huge fan of the Arden editions and enjoy reading the plays with all this helpful material and I strongly recommend this edition of this play.

Excellent work of the editor 27 novembre 2007
Par islander - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the best edition in the Arden collection I have read until now, by Charles Forker. Very helpful to understand meaning with clear footnotes and a serious introduction in which, for example, you learn about historical and fictional facts in the play, and many other clues.
I agreed with a reviewer of another Arden work who said: "The text itself is full of stumbling, often unhelpful endnotes - what students surely want are explanations of difficult words and figures, not a history of scholarly pedantry. The edition concludes with textual appendices."
It happened to me before but fortunately not in this work, which is excellent. The editor makes the difference. I hope Arden Series follows this line!

"Let us sit upon the ground, / And tell sad stories of the death of kings--" 19 novembre 2015
Par R. M. Peterson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
RICHARD II is one of Shakespeare's English histories. He earlier had written the three parts of "Henry VI" as well as "Richard III". With RICHARD II he backtracks in time to the late fourteenth century and the last king who ruled by direct hereditary right in succession from William the Conqueror.

The play is written entirely in verse, with occasional rhyming. It is a very lyrical play. It also is very serious; there are no comedic characters or any comedic moments (unusual for Shakespeare). There is much ceremony and pageantry, and quite a bit of chivalry, including obsequious flattery as well as righteous indignation culminating in the throwing down of gages.

The principal subject is kingship -- its nature, its inherent responsibilities, and its succession. One of the issues Shakespeare explores is whether kingship -- or queenship, inasmuch as Elizabeth I was nearing the end of her reign when the play was written in 1595 -- is religious and hieratic in nature, or, instead, is a political office, to be captured, maintained, and passed on by skillful realpolitik.

One of the lessons of the play is: how uneasy is he who wears the crown. As the title for this review, I have taken two lines from one of the many wonderful philosophizing monologues of King Richard. It continues thus:

How some have been deposed, some slain in war,
Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed,
Some poisoned by their wives, some sleeping killed,
All murdered. For within the hollow crown
That rounds the mortal temples of a king
Keeps Death his court * * *.

Here is a streamlined summary of the play: It opens with Richard II as king. There is much discontent with his reign, both among the nobility and the commons. He surrounds himself with sycophants and relentlessly enriches his personal treasury through the expropriation of private property and the imposition of crushing taxes. His undoing begins when he sends his cousin, Harry Bolingbroke, into exile and then, when Bolingbroke's father John of Gaunt dies, Richard grabs the entire estate, denying Bolingbroke his rightful inheritance. Richard goes off to wage war in Ireland. While he is there Bolingbroke returns to England, and many nobles rally around him. When Richard returns to England, he discovers that most of his supporters have deserted him. He abdicates and transfers the crown to Bolingbroke, making the latter King Henry IV. But that does not end the vying for the crown. One more conspiracy must be ruthlessly dispelled and punished, and Richard is murdered by Sir Piers Exton, who believes he is carrying out Henry IV's wishes.

Richard is a lousy king but he has a marvelous way with words. For example, when summoned by Bolingbroke to transfer the crown and scepter, Richard finds some of his former supporters surrounding Bolingbroke. He remarks,

* * * Yet I well remember
The favours of these men. Were they not mine?
Did they not sometime cry 'All hail!' to me?
So Judas did to Christ. But He in twelve
Found truth in all but one; I, in twelve thousand, none.

Or consider the twist on the famous lines of Christopher Marlowe about Helen of Troy ("Was this the face that launched a thousand ships / And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?") that Richard speaks while looking into a mirror immediately after relinquishing his crown and scepter:

* * * O flatt'ring glass,
Like to my followers in prosperity,
Thou dost beguile me! Was this face the face
That every day under his household roof
Did keep ten thousand men? Was this the face
That like the sun did make beholders wink?
Is this the face which faced so many follies,
That was at last outfaced by Bolingbroke?

The story of RICHARD II is rather straightforward. From the standpoint of action, it is not an especially exciting play; nor is it tragic (Richard is too pathetic a king to anchor a full-fledged tragedy). But it does have much extraordinary lyric poetry. It is one of my favorites of the plays I have read so far in my ongoing traversal of Shakespeare.
"We are amazed.....": THE SUN AND GOLDEN : strategies in interpretation for actors 11 décembre 2014

Beautiful introductory notes elucidating the history of the house of Plantagenet, the ongoing civil wars and Shakespeare's use of verse and imagery. Good dissection in the footnotes of references, antecedents and sentence structure. A must for actors and directors. Invaluable in enlightening this period of Shakespeare's writing.
A great help for actors in detecting the sense of verse, psychology and sentences. Footnotes are admirable in their illumination of the logic of Shakespeare's comparisons and the details and responsibilities of kingship to GOD and country..
