Shakespeare's Early History Plays

This chapter begins by evaluating the textual history of Richard III as well as the reconstruction of the play. It also examines several memorable productions of Richard III. It also discusses the first Shakespearean version of Richard III. It argues that most of the century's European productions thus wavered between the evolutive image of tyranny, and the scrutiny of its protean vehicle, stressing historical process or timeless myth. It adds that Shakespeare brought forth Richard III's short reign as the most famous and infamous one in all English history.

Keywords:   Richard III, Germany, European production, translation, prologue, Hall, Tudor, Holinshed
