Blurb: Explores the remarkable richness and the ambitious design of King Henry IV Part 1 and shows how these complicate any easy sense of what kind of play it is. Conventionally regarded as a history play, much of it is in fact conspicuously invented fiction, and argues that the non-historical, comic plot does not simply parody the historical action but by its existence raises questions about the very nature of history.
