Abstract:

Shakespeare's play about Richard of Gloucester, a self-proclaimed villain who usurps the crown. Through family machinations, political marriages, and military coups, this play portrays the tumultuous reign of King Edward IV and the ascension of Richard to the throne. The Yorkists have emerged victorious from the civil wars and Edward IV wears the English crown. But Edward's misshapen brother Richard harbors kingly ambitions and will stop at nothing to achieve the throne. In a final battle on Bosworth Field, Richard meets the ghosts of all whom he has murdered and the Earl of Richmond, the future King Henry VII.
