Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In the First Folio, the plays of William Shakespeare were grouped into three categories: comedies, histories, and tragedies. This categorisation has become established, although some critics have argued for a fourth category, the romance. The histories were those plays based on the lives of English kings. Therefore they can be more accurately called the "English history plays," a less common designation. The plays that depict older historical figures such as Pericles, Prince of Tyre, Julius Caesar, and the legendary King Lear were not included in that classification. Macbeth, which is based on a Scottish king, was also classed as a tragedy, not a history. The source for most of the history plays is the well known Raphael Holinshed's Chronicle of English history. Shakespeare's history plays focus on only a small part of the characters' lives, and also frequently omit significant events for dramatic purposes.
