Richard III


  • Author: William Shakespeare

  • Genre: Theater
  • File Size: 1073127 Bytes


When Richard looks at his brother, King Edward IV, he is so blinded by jealousy that he can only see a tyrant. In spite of his brother's peaceful and stabile reign, Richard bemoans it as the "winter of our discontent." Speaking directly to the audience, he informs them of his intentions to tear apart his own family to accelerate his ascent to the throne. As the murders add up, Richard remains cold and unrepentant, proving himself one of the most unforgettably amoral villains in literature. But even as Richard stifles his conscience, he cannot escape being haunted by the ghosts of the many victims of his machinations....

Richard III Book Description :

Richard III ruled England for a mere twenty-six months, yet few English monarchs remain as compulsively fascinating, and none has been more persistently vilified. In his absorbing and universally praised account, Charles Ross assesses the king within the context of his violent age and explores the critical questions of the reign: why and how Richard Plantagenet usurped the throne; the belief that he ordered the murder of "the Princes in the Tower"; the events leading to the battle of Bosworth in 1485; and the death of the Yorkist dynasty with Richard himself. In a new foreword, Professor Richard A. Griffiths identifies the attributes that have made Ross's account the leading biography in the field, and assesses the impact of the research published si...

Richard III Book Description :

Despite reigning for only a relatively short period of time, Richard III is one of England's most controversial monarchs. His life and rule has inspired a huge amount of literature, not least Shakespeare's great play, and controversy still surrounds his seizure of the throne in 1485, the mystery of the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower, and his defeat and death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. This biography takes a nuanced view both of Richard III's reign and of the controversies surrounding it, exploring them in the wider context of the period. Defining Richard's character as central to the analysis of his actions, the author emphasizes the need to separate the man himself from the caricature that has so often been painted. The main focus...
