Read an Excerpt

Act 1, Scene 1

Enter Richard Duke of Gloucester, solus.

RICHARD Now is the winter of our discontent Made glorious summer by this son of York,
And all the clouds that loured upon our house In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.
Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths,
Our bruisèd arms hung up for monuments,
Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings,
Our dreadful marches to delightful measures.
Grim-visaged war hath smoothed his wrinkled front;
And now, instead of mounting barbèd steeds To fright the souls of fearful adversaries,
He capers nimbly in a lady's chamber To the lascivious pleasing of a lute.
But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks,
Nor made to court an amorous looking glass;
I, that am rudely stamped, and want love's majesty To strut before a wanton ambling nymph;
I, that am curtailed of this fair proportion,
Cheated of feature by dissembling nature,
Deformed, unfinished, sent before my time Into this breathing world scarce half made up,
And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them.
Why I, in this weak piping time of peace,
Have no delight to pass away the time,
Unless to spy my shadow in the sun And descant on mine own deformity.
And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover To entertain these fair well-spoken days,
I am determinèd to prove a villain,
And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
Plots have I laid, inductions dangerous,
By drunken prophecies, libels and dreams,
To set my brother Clarence and the King In deadly hate the one against the other;
And if King Edward be as true and just As I am subtle, false, and treacherous,
This day should Clarence closely be mewed up,
About a prophecy, which says that G Of Edward's heirs the murderer shall be.
Dive thoughts down to my soul, here Clarence comes.
Enter Clarence, guarded, and Brakenbury.

    Absolutely Beautiful !!!

    Shakespeare showcases his mastery of the English language in Richard III. The dialogue is typical of Shakespearean dilogue: it is filled with puns and similes, metaphors and imagery. One cannot go wrong with Shakespeare's Richard III; I have just finished reading it, and I will re-read it today! It is a masterpiece!!
