King Richard III – News

 

The “BBC History Magazine” has

Richard III. Why Shakespeare made him a devil

as main article in the current May 2012 issue.

 

In this article, “Paulina Kewes considers the sources that contributed to William Shakespeare’s portrayal of Richard III“.

Unfortunately I have not been able so far to get hold of this article, so I only include the description of the article given on the magazine’s website.

Please comment and let us know your opinion about this article, if you already had a chance to read it. Thank you!

 


 

An interesting event about King Richard III, coming up in October 2012, is the symposium held by the Richard III Foundation in Market Bosworth (Dixie Grammar School in Market Bosworth).
