Shakespeare and the Remains of Richard III

This chapter explores the representation of Richard and his contemporaries in poems, songs, and plays, from the late fifteenth century through the early seventeenth. It charts a movement from the strikingly reticent and gnomic verses composed shortly after Bosworth, to the veritable flood of poetic laments and historical tragedies that characterized the Elizabethan era.
