The Artistic Links Between William Shakespeare and Sir Thomas More: Radically Different Richards

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, May 15, 2011 - Literary Criticism - 304 pages
0 Reviews

Approaching the subject from a dramaturgical point of view, this investigation differs from anything that has been written about the relationship between Thomas More and William Shakespeare.  Charles A. Hallett and Elaine S. Hallett define, in specific terms, what Shakespeare learned from his study of More’s History and how he exploited that knowledge to heighten the drama in his enduring masterpiece Richard III.
