Unless it be while some tormenting dream

Thou loathèd issue of thy father's loins!
Thou rag of honour! thou detested—

CLARENCE: Awe

Shakespeare wrote two titanic tetralogies at the start of his career, spanning through the dynasties of 15th-century kings of England, from Edward III down to Henry VII. The second half of this gigantic saga (Henry VI, Parts 1, 2 and 3 + Richard III) has a general downward and inward movement.

"A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!

Poor old Richard. I think you needed more than that horse to save your kingdom…..

4 out of 5 stars to William Shakespeare's famous play, Richard III, one of his "War of the Roses" tragedies produced in the 16th century in England. People have generally heard of this King, and know more about him than they realize, but he is not one of the more famously read plays in high school o

Ah good old Dick III. Killing yer husbands, killing yer children. An all-round family guy.

Richard's deformity is not merely a physical sign of spiritual evil, but also a metaphor for the twisted era of internecine an
