This study explores the artistic devices which contribute to the construction of the image of the patriot in three heroic- chronicle English plays, which generally represent the main patriotic concerns of the English Renaissance history plays. The anonymous Woodstock (1592) dramatizes the title character's fervid allegiance to England under the misgovernment of King Richard II, while, on the other hand, Edward III (1592-95) celebrates and memorializes Prince Edward's exploits in his wars against France. Similarly Thomas Dekker's and John Webster's Sir Thomas Wyatt (1603-05) chronicles the title character's opposition to the Spanish rule over England
