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!
