This lyrical beginning to the War of the Roses is among the most moving of all of Shakespeare’s histories. More poet than monarch, Richard is ill-suited to the role that lineage and legacy demands of him. Surrounded by ambitious men who would prey on his vulnerabilities, Richard is toppled from the throne by his cunning and capable cousin, Henry. But in the loss of his worldly power, Richard makes an unexpected revelation far more important than any kingdom.
