Examines five ways in which Shakespeare’s play characterizes the relationship between conscience and evil deeds.
Carefully examining the 1954 and 1995 films, both entitled Richard III; as well as Shakespeare’s Richard III, Al Pacino’s Looking for Richard, and historical and biographical accounts of Richard III provides many opportunities to compare and contrast these various interpretations. William Shakespeare’s play is the best known of these productions, and justifiably so, for it created a memorable and lasting image of Richard III that renders the historical figure virtually irrelevant to most people. Shakespeare’s interpretation of Richard is so powerful, vivid, and overwhelming that no biography or historical account can even begin to compare.
