Henry IV:2

William Shakespeare

The second part of Shakespeare's History play Henry IV and the third entry in the Henriad, Montagu discusses Henry IV:2 in her Essay on Shakespeare, praising the psychological continuity of character between Henry IV: 1 and 2, the speeches of Lancaster and Westmorland, and Prince Hal's demeanour outside of the court. She dislike the indecorous characterisation of Mistress Quickly, however.
