This paper explores the differences between William Shakespeare's account of Richard III and Josephine Tey's account of the same. The author discusses such differences as historical accuracy, the protagonist's motivations and the differences in the plots.
From the Paper:"Shakespeare's descriptions of Richard III have been the most popular historical account. He describes Richard to be a physically deformed individual with his deformities eating away at his mind and soul turning him into a loathsome character. Moreover, he depicts Richard to be greedy for throne so much so that he went about on a murdering spree. In Shakespeare's account, Richard killed his own brother George whose turn it was in the line of succession within the House of York. Moreover, he had the queen's brothers, Rivers and Gray and his wife Anne murdered too with the aid of the conspiratorial Buckingham."
