Shakespeare's Early History Plays

Dominique Goy-Blanquet

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by explaining that the turning of chronicle into drama moves from extensive to microsurgery wherein Shakespeare still borrows, cuts, contracts, and displaces material, creating a far more intricate design. It argues that the suppression of repetitive episodes or bit parts fixes the stutters of history without sensibly affecting the original material, and avoids the return of issues discussed in the first play. It adds that more significant changes resulted in alterations, particularly of the time-sequence.

Keywords:   plot, time-sequence, England, Hall, repetitive episodes
