Shakespeare – What he Should Have Written …

 

Shakespeare’s “Richard III” is well or mostly not so well remembered from school.

It is common knowledge that Shakespeare was very creative with forming historical detail anew to reach the greatest effect for his plays, so he cannot be seen as a reliable source for the times of King Richard III.

 

That even King Richard III himself has strong objections against Shakespeare’s version of the story, shows this funny little video by “Horrible Histories”:

 

But the endeavor to write, what Shakespeare should have written if he had been more true to real events, nobody undertook before

    Thanks for linking to Mr Fripp’s guestpost on FLY HIGH! My great interest in anything Ricardian started thanks to Richard Armitage and his mentioning The Sunne in Spleandour in one of his interviews. I really hope to see his dream of a Richard III series (a film would not be enough for such a complex epic tale) come true. Will his adventure in “The Hobbit” pave the way to its realization or distract him from it?

      Thank you, Maria Grazia. I hope, “The Hobbit” will pave the way for the Richard III project of Richard Armitage. It would really deserve to be made and it would be so necessary to for once tell the true story about an astonishingly good king.
