If you are a student of drama and/ or Shakespeare Arden is the best edition for graduate work (Norton for undergraduate work and Oxford is making a good show for either).

It is a boon to have so many works like this instantly available, and for free. In the old days one had to scour bookshops or peer into the small print of old volumes of 'complete works', often in two columns with the lines broken up eccentrically. Here, however, is a text easy to read - and this has since boyhood one of my favourite of Shakespeare's plays. Others may accuse it (or me!) of being immature, Marlovian, bloody, but what is wonderful in this play is the farewell to that great character whose progress has spanned all three Henry VI works and who is really the central figure of them - Richard, Duke of York - and transfer of focus onto the son who embodies so many of his characteristics yet in a form twisted by the horror of events - Richard, Duke of Gloucester, destined to become Richard III. Olivier was quite right to purloin lines from Gloucester's fantastic final soliloquy in this play and graft them onto the opening soliloquy of the ultimate play in Shakespeare's tetralogy in his film version, for the rhetoric here is second to none and development of Richard III's character incomplete if one does not follow the logic of it through the sequence. There are many other brilliancies here, including Henry VI's lamentation over war and death and Margaret of Anjou's tirade before the beheading of York. In something of the way that Beethoven's personal mastery of the great genre he inherited from Mozart and Haydn is first revealed in the finale of his 2nd symphony, so the mastery of Shakespeare over a genre inherited from Marlow is affirmed firstly in this play - a product of apparently almost effortless youthful genius.

King Henry, Part 3, is the best of the King Henry VI plays and provides the background and serves as the foundation for King Richard III.

Henry VI trilogy is not often played, but its important as the earliest of Shakespeare's incursion into British History as dramatic stoock. This edition, as with many of these free or low price offerings, is difficult to navigate.
