'Not all the water in the rough rude sea Can wash the balm off from an anointed king' Richard, a vain, despotic ruler, listens only to his flatterers. When his cousin Bolingbroke, previously banished, returns to seize the crown, Richard discovers that the throne given to him by God can be taken from him by men. Depicting a tortured and morally ambivalent soul wearing the 'hollow crown', whose illusions are brutally shattered, this tragic history play unravels the idea of kingship. It is also a work of epic lyricism, filled with some of Shakespeare's most intoxicating poetry. 'We go to Shakespeare to find out about ourselves.' Jeanette Winterson General Introduction by Stanley Wells Edited by Stanley Wells with an Introduction by Paul Edmondson
