Shakespeare's Early History Plays

Dominique Goy-Blanquet

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by discussing Shakespeare's accomplishments and learning by the end of Richard III. It describes Shakespeare, like many of his fellow playwrights, as someone who shows to the audience that the theatre is the place of counterfeit. It adds that Shakespeare's dialectical view of history stages a contest of destructive and dynamic forces, wavering between the tragedy and the comedy of life. This chapter also evaluates other literary works of Shakespeare.

Keywords:   Richard III, Shakespeare, Henry VI, classical aesthetics, Elizabethan stage
