The concluding chapter focuses on the temporal paradoxes of Richard III, drawing parallels with The True Tragedy of Richard III and Hamlet. Through a close reading of Shakespeare’s adaptation of a passage from Holinshed’s Chronicles, it is argued that the play’s extraordinary temporal effects are the product of Shakespeare’s imaginative and practical engagement with the traces of Richard’s reign surviving in his world.
