The play ends with an epilogue in which the Chorus reminds the audience that King Harry's life was all too short and that he was succeeded by the child king Henry VI, whose state was mangled and mismanaged by so many rival lords "That they lost France and made his England bleed,, Which oft our stage hath shown. The latter line is a jokey reference to the fact that Shakespeare had made his theatrical name with the Henry VI plays.

KING HENRY VI For my part, noble lords, I care not which; Or Somerset or York, all's one to me. YORK If York have ill demean'd himself in France, Then let him be denay'd the regentship. SOMERSET If Somerset be unworthy of the place, Let York be regent; I will yield to him. WARWICK Whether your grace be worthy, yea or no, Dispute not that: York is the worthier. CARDINAL Ambitious Warwick, let thy betters speak. WARWICK The cardinal's not my better in the field. BUCKINGHAM All in this presence are thy betters, Warwick.

The Wars of the Roses haunted the Elizabethans. The Second Part of King Henry VI is concerned with the nature of history, the role of conscience and the relation between law and equity. It contains a complex reading of a popular uprising, led by Jack Cade.

King Henry VI matures as a gentle, spiritual man. Peace has been established between England and France and Suffolk has arranged a strategic marriage for the King to Margaret of Anjou. Suffolk, with his close relationship to Margaret, and the Duke of Gloucester hold influential positions at the court, as Henry lacks interest in politics and the affairs of the state. This weakness in leadership opens the door for power struggles among the royal family, the nobles and aristocrats. The murder of the Duke is just the first in a series of catastrophes leading to the open uprising against the King in the War of the Roses. An exciting and dynamic play, King Henry VI Part 2, explores the relationship between leadership, power and liberty.

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!

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

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.
