King Richard the Third , grew up in the turbulent years of the War of the Roses, 1455-1485, the English crown fought between the House of York, symbolized by the White Rose, and the House of Lancaster, the Red Rose, Sovereigns on the throne, vanish rapidly, ironically, two branches of the same Plantagenet family. Richard's brother Edward IV, at 6 foot four inches, the tallest British monarch in history, is dying, over indulgences, so much food and drink, the warrior king has become very fat, I mean obese. His two sons, Edward and Richard, are too young to rule, with the demise of their father, Uncle Richard, the Duke of Gloucester, places the young , trusting princes, his nephews, in the legendary Tower of London, part castle and the other a prison, Queen Elizabeth, the mother, Edward the fourth's wife, flees to a sanctuary with her two remaining daughters. They the little princes, disappear without a trace from sight, a mystery that has never been solved. Wild rumors spread that they were executed, by the rather ambitious man. Through less than ethical maneuvering, ( treacherous, some say ) with the help of the greedy Duke of Buckingham , takes the throne, many rivals fall, Buckingham too, including even disloyal brother Clarence, the last one, he has, and the blood spills freely, but a new king is crowned, Richard 111, long live the king... Queen Anne dies, the new monarch's wife, he then wants to marry young Elizabeth, his brother Edward IV's, daughter... Uneasy lies the man on the throne, a new threat emerges from exile in France, the Earl of Richmond's navy, lands in England, his marching army sets off to challenge Richard, the Battle of Bosworth Field , will decide who becomes master of the unstable nation. But the eyes of the dead, will no longer see the beautiful blue skies above, the green grass under their feet, the sweet smelling roses, both white and red, growing on the land, the soothing sounds of water, as it goes over rocks, in a small brook, the singing of the happy birds, to each other, on a tree, the gentle winds touching the gentlemen's faces, the magic of the rainbow colors, after a refreshing rain, the warm Sun, drying the pastures ... The caressing and kisses , of loved ones, the untroubled, shouting children, playing outside ... riding a horse over a hill , looking at the gorgeous sunset, as it dips below the horizon, pets who are always glad to see you, without any reservations, the taste of newly baked bread, the wonder of the moon shining down, on them, as they walk under the rays, trying to guess, what it really is, the steep, powerful sea waves rushing the shore, bringing unknown objects and quickly going back... no the winners or losers, that can not rise again, will miss all these things.... as their lives ebb slowly, into nothingness ... ...more
Jun 02, 2008Richard III = The Tragedy of King Richard the Third (Wars of the Roses #8), William Shakespeare
Oct 01, 2015Ah good old Dick III. Killing yer husbands, killing yer children. An all-round family guy.
Nov 15, 2019Shakespeare wrote two titanic tetralogies at the start of his career, spanning through the dynasties of 15th-century kings of England, from Edward III down to Henry VII. The second half of this gigantic saga (Henry VI, Parts 1, 2 and 3 + Richard III) has a general downward and inward movement.
Feb 20, 2017"A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!
Sep 05, 20164 out of 5 stars to William Shakespeare's famous play, Richard III, one of his "War of the Roses" tragedies produced in the 16th century in England. People have generally heard of this King, and know more about him than they realize, but he is not one of the more famously read plays in high school or college, falling behind the more popular comedies and tragedies of Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and A Mid-Summer Night's Dream.

Nov 10, 2013I played Anne in my school's production of Richard III when I was 15. In the seduction scene from Act 1, the guy playing Richard, who was a complete asshole, decided to put his hand on my left breast somewhere towards the end. I turned round and punched him in the face, knocking out one of his teeth.

Sep 06, 2016This. ARG! This play really made me FURIOUS!
Oct 11, 2016One day I may find the time and the energy to prepare some well thought out, elegantly composed, insightful and informative reviews of Shakespeares greatest plays affording them with at least a modicum of the respect that they justly deserve. In the meantime I am offering a few very quickly thought through ideas on what are undoubtedly the greatest (English language) literary works for the stage ever written.
Nov 11, 2016This is a second reading of the play for me. It paints King Richard III of England (1452-1485) as the greatest villain of all literature, a sociopathic monster willing to do anything to achieve his desire for power. During the recent US presidential campaign, there have been several articles comparing Richard III to Donald Trump. Time will tell.
Feb 19, 2009Richard is ugly, and the girls aren't interested. This really sours his attitude. He decides to plunge the country into another ruinous civil war; that'll show the bitches.
Feb 24, 2019I usually stay away from English Renaissance drama altogether, because the language alone is killing me (don't laugh, how do you fare at 400+ year old versions of your fourth language?). Yesterday, I came across the Schaubühne stage production of Richard III. though, directed by Thomas Ostermeier and starring Lars Eidinger - holy sh**!!! This was so insanely fascinating and powerful (proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEt4z...) that I actually picked up the original English text, and you I usually stay away from English Renaissance drama altogether, because the language alone is killing me (don't laugh, how do you fare at 400+ year old versions of your fourth language?).

This was so insanely fascinating and powerful (proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEt4z...) that I actually picked up the original English text, and you have to give it to good old Billy that he invented a brilliant villain - and this is an invention, because the play is not historically accurate - and had a couple of smart things to say about the nature of power.
Jul 26, 2018Oh, Richard, what am I to do with you? Richard III is one of Shakespeares earliest plays which means that Willie wasnt the Bard yet. Its also one of his longest plays. I honestly couldnt imagine sitting through a stage adaptation of it, unless there were five bathroom breaks. And its also one of the histories and boy let me tell you, I really dont like the histories. [Even though Im reconsidering their value because Im enjoying Henry IV immensely at the moment.] So Richard and me were off to a Oh, Richard, what am I to do with you? Richard III is one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays which means that Willie wasn’t the Bard yet. It’s also one of his longest plays. I honestly couldn’t imagine sitting through a stage adaptation of it, unless there were five bathroom breaks. And it’s also one of the histories and boy let me tell you, I really don’t like the histories. [Even though I’m reconsidering their value because I’m enjoying Henry IV immensely at the moment.] So Richard and me were off to a rough start. I started this play at the end of May and abandoned it after merely two scenes because I couldn’t be bothered. I don’t know which muse kissed me last week but not only did I manage to finish the play within two days, I also somewhat enjoyed it, like what?
Jun 12, 2018Like many of Shakespeares early plays, Richard III is mostly full of flat characters, with just one or two that bear the bards characteristic stamp. Unlike Two Gentlemen of Verona or King John, however, this plays most interesting character is mercifully at the center of the action: Richard III.
