While it is widely believed that the first part of Shakespeare's Henry VI was written jointly with 17th-century playwright Thomas Nashe, the second and third parts of the play have generally been attributed to Shakespeare and no one else. The author of this volume asserts that this assumption could be wrong and proposes Christopher Marlowe as a prime candidate to pen such a work.

Excerpt from The Authorship of the Second and Third Parts of "King Henry Vi" It is doubtless true that the question of Shakespeare's concern in the Henry VI plays possesses considerably higher importance than any other which arises in this connexion. It seems clear, however, that this question can be adequately discussed only after definite knowledge has been attained regarding the origin and general charac ter of the plays upon which Shakespeare based his work. In the following treatment, therefore, I purpose first to consider in detail the authorship and dramatic structure of the plays which Shake speare received as his sources - namely, the Contention and the True Tragedy; and then, on the basis of what may thus be ascertained, to attempt an investigation of the extent and nature of the altera tions introduced by Shakespeare. It is hoped that some light may thus be thrown upon the character of Shakespeare's style and method during his earliest dramatic period.
