Subject: Re: King Henry VI
I am working on a paper which examines the 1963 RSC production WARS OF THE
ROSES and an 1817 Drury Lane production entitled RICHARD DUKE OF YORK,
ascribed to J.H. Merivale and written for Edmund Kean. These are worth
study in tandem because, among other things, they offer remarkably parallel
rationales for adapting "lesser" Shakespeare (though part of the WARS is
RICHARD III, hardly "lesser."
I am particularly in need of some advice regarding early nineteenth century
critical opinions of the Henry VI plays.
Thank you for your help.
