This paper introduces, discusses, and analyzes the play, "Richard III", by William Shakespeare. It discusses just what enables this "foul devil" to succeed: his own talents, the corruption of the world around him, or a combination of the two. It also look at what this suggests about Shakespeare's tragic vision.

From the Paper:

"Richard III is the opposite of many of Shakespeare's other heroes, who are tragic figures. Richard is a villainous hero, which makes him unique, and in addition makes him extremely unlikable, but intensely human. Richard III was a real historical figure who lived only a century before Shakespeare's time, so Richard was a timely character to theater audiences of Shakespeare's era, and they understood the many twists and turns the play takes in winding its way to its conclusion. Richard of Gloucester is a hunchback who ascends to the throne of England due to his own treachery, and then holds court as a murderous villain and fiend."
