Richard III by William Shakespeare
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
The slow build to Richard’s moment in the sun results in one of the greatest villains on page, stage or screen. Shakespeare handles the compressing of years into just five Acts better than he has before to show Richard’s rise to the throne through murderous plot after murderous plot. The speeches are top notch compared to previous works and the language more advanced. I could go on, but I would be repeating what others have said.
