Richard III ends like every other Shakespearean tragedy – there's some major bloodshed and our hero/protagonist goes down pretty hard during the Battle of Bosworth Field.. But even though the final act of the play is a "tragic" ending for Richard, it's a glorious new beginning for England – thanks to Richmond/King Henry VII, who defeats Richard in battle (Stage Direction, Act 5, Scene 8). Critical Essay Date, Style and Theme in Richard III. The history of this period dating from the reign of Richard II to the defeat of Richard III at Bosworth Field in was dramatized in two tetralogies.

He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "the Bard"). His extant works, including collaborations, consist of some 39 plays, sonnets, two long narrative.

The Tragedy of King Richard III | Richard III is one of Shakespeare's most popular plays on the stage and has been adapted successfully for film. This new and innovative edition recognizes the play's pre-eminence as a performance work: a perspective that informs every aspect of the editing. Remember our reward when the deed’s done. I’ll not meddle with it. It makes a man a coward: a man cannot steal but it accuseth him; a man cannot swear but it checks him; a man cannot lie with his neighbor’s wife but it detects him. 'Tis a blushing, shamefaced spirit that mutinies in a man’s.
