Whereas Henry VI, Part 2 deals with the King's inability to quell the bickering of his nobles and the inevitability of armed conflict and Henry VI, Part 3 deals with the horrors of that conflict, Henry VI, Part 1 deals with the loss of England's French territories and the political machinations leading up to the Wars of the Roses , as the English political system is torn apart by personal squabbles and petty jealousy. Although the Henry VI trilogy may not have been written in chronological order, the three plays are often grouped together with Richard III to form a tetralogy covering the entire Wars of the Roses saga, from the death of Henry V in to the rise to power of Henry VII in It was the success of this sequence of plays that firmly established Shakespeare's reputation as a playwright. The play begins with the funeral of Henry V, who has died unexpectedly in his prime. As his brothers, the Dukes of Bedford and Gloucester , and his uncle, the Duke of Exeter , lament his passing and express doubt as to whether his son the as yet uncrowned heir apparent Henry VI is capable of running the country in such tumultuous times, word arrives of military setbacks in France.

A contribution to the literature of the American Renaissance , Moby-Dick was published to mixed reviews, was a commercial failure, and was out of print at the time of the author's death in Its reputation as a " Great American Novel " was established only in the 20th century, after the centennial of its author's birth.

Lawrence called it "one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world" and "the greatest book of the sea ever written".
