Henry the VI - Part II

ByWilliam Shakespeare

Henry VI, Part 2 was probably written ca. 1590–91. The Diary of Philip Henslowe records a performance of a play called Henry VI on March 3, 1592. It is known from other sources that the other two parts of Shakespeare's Henrician trilogy were on stage in 1592. Thomas Nashe's Pierce Penniless (registered August 1592) refers to a popular play about Lord Talbot, which is thought to be Henry VI, Part 1 (there is no alternative candidate). Robert Greene's pamphlet A Groatsworth of Wit (registered Sept. 1592) parodies a line from Henry VI, Part 3. Since both Parts 1 and 3 were being acted in 1592, it is sensibly assumed that Part 2 was also—though there is no direct evidence of this.
