In what ways does Shakespeare establish continuity of family and dramatic
events through such plays as Henry IV Part 1 and 2, and Henry V? Is it
important to read Shakespeare’s historical plays as meditations on family
relations, or are the kinships portrayed merely as points of historic
detail? How historically accurate are Shakespeare’s portrayals of these
royal kinships? Connecticut Review is looking for academic essays
addressing kinship and its representation in Shakespeare’s histories.
Your work should be 2,000 to 4,000 words. Submit work to: in hypertext form or send 2 hard copies to:
