February 11: The Chronicles, the Bones and Shakespeare’s Villain Hero
When Shakespeare looked in the Chronicles for information about King Richard III, he found stories over 100 years old. You'll learn what Shakespeare added to the stories that resulted in the Richard we know. And what does the recent discovery of the bones contribute to Richard’s story?
Join Director of Research Emerita at the Folger Shakespeare Library Barbara A. Mowat as she examines Richard III in Artis—Naples’ Shakespeare in Film series.
