Revue de presse

This is far and away the finest critical edition of the play available (Eric Rasmussen, Shakespeare Survey)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Richard III is one of Shakespeare's most popular plays on the stage and has been adapted successfully for film. This new and innovative edition recognizes the play's pre-eminence as a performance work: a perspective that informs every aspect of the editing. Challenging traditional practice, the text is based on the 1597 Quarto which, it is argued, brings us closest to the play as it would have been staged in Shakespeare's theatre. The introduction, which is illustrated, explores the long performance history from Shakespeare's time to the present. Its critical engagement with the play responds to recent historicist and gender-based approaches. The commentary gives detailed explication of matters of language, staging, text, and historical and cultural contexts, providing coverage that is both carefully balanced and alert to nuance of meaning. Documentation of the extensive textual variants is organized for maximum clarity: the readings of the Folio and the Quarto are presented in separate banks, and more specialist information is given at the back of the book. Appendices also include selected passages from the main source and a special index of actors and other theatrical personnel. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Contrairement à ce qu'on pourrait imaginer Richard III est la pièce de William Shakespeare la plus jouer dans le monde. Sans doute parce qu'à la différence d'Hamlet qui tergiverse, Richard agit et tranche dans le vif. Sans doute aussi parce que ce personnage est l'une des incarnations du mal les plus réussie : " Ma conscience a mille langues, et chaque langue raconte une histoire, et chaque histoire me condamne comme scélérat. Le parjure, le parjure, au plus haut degré, le meurtre, le meurtre cruel, au plus atroce degré, tous les crimes, poussés au suprême degré, se pressent à la barre criant tous Coupable ! coupable ! " Seule la captation du pouvoir compte pour lui et aucun moyen ne sera écarté pour parvenir au sommet du royaume d'Angleterre et aucun pour s'y maintenir. Richard règne dans le sang et la trahison jusqu'à ce que l'Histoire mette un point final à un règne qu'il aurait voulu éternel. Du très grand Shakespeare !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Darkly Humorous--Richard II--is Reviewed 5 avril 2017
Par Brian Wayne Wells - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
This is a copy of the famous Shakespeare play--Richard III--published by Signet Publishing Company. This particular publisher has been my favorite publisher Shakespeare plays since my undergraduate days. Signet's entire collection of Shakespeare's plays contains much more than the simple transcript of the play itself. Each volume contains an extensive number of essays and articles on the particular play which is contained in the volume. I have gone back to these volumes time and time again in order to read these articles.

Almost A Tragedy: Richard III by Shakespeare
We saw a RADA performance of Richard III last summer on the Queen Mary 2 sailing across the North Atlantic to Southampton. I was struck by how tragic the play is even if it is supposed to be one of the histories. It reminds me of Macbeth. Richard aspires to be king the way Macbeth does. He commits crimes and must pay the price. In the end he dies defending his kingdom, again like Macbeth. Macbeth must fight the woods that come to Dunsinane. Richard cries out, "A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!" while carrying on a battle against Richmond.In the RADA production's staging we saw underlined the ever-growing dark quality of the drama: flowers were laid on the stage by the gravestone of the newest victim. Richard's wife, Anne, grieves for her sins in marrying Richard and being seduced by him even as Lady Macbeth goes mad. The ghosts of the slain rise up against Richard in his sleep before his end while Macbeth is always grappling with witches and the supernaturalMacbeth. Of course the only reason Richard III doesn't number among the Shakespearian tragedies is because of Tudor politics. Richard was on the wrong side in the Wars of the Roses. He was the enemy of Queen Elizabeth's family. Shakespeare was forced to render the character of Richard in two dimensions instead of three.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Richard III (folger library edition) 24 décembre 2011
Par Alan M. Shearer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I chose this Folger edition of the play because I have used these editions ever since I was a drama student in high school. I always like the way the footnotes and definitions of obscure words are interspersed with each page of text. These are among the most readable editions because one can quickly find the footnotes while reading, without interrupting the reading to flip to another page. Footnotes tend to be very small in print in some other editions, as well. The type set or font here is of a size that makes for ease in reading.
Of course, one should read many of the fine editions of other paperback and hardbound publications of Shakespeare to get to know the plays in depth. But the Folger PB copies are well-priced, and a very good choice for a first reading of any play.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Scientists discover bones – Playwrights discover souls 15 mars 2013

They can find bones but not the spirit. That was my thought when reading today’s newspaper and encountering an article describing the controversy over where the found remains of King Richard III should be interred. Yes, scientific analysis indicated his body was probably deformed due to scoliosis. However, only the master of the English language could discover Richard’s lament that ‘dogs bark at me as I halt by them’. Thus the motive for Richard’s villainous nature is established in Shakespeare’s play Richard III. Means and opportunity come easy to the royal knave whose evil mantra removes the handcuffs of restraint with the pithy observation that ‘Conscience is but a word that cowards use’. The picture is painted, the colors are words and Shakespeare is the artist.

I thoroughly enjoyed re-reading the play Richard III on my Kindle e-book device. The instant access to e-dictionaries made reading Shakespeare easier compared to reading my print version where the thought process is more readily interrupted by the length of time required to look up the definition of a word. English words are the linchpins of Shakespeare’s artistry so understanding their meanings are essential to the overall enjoyment of his works.

Since Richard III is historical fiction one must be reasonable in making historical judgments. I consider my following judgment of King Richard III a fair conclusion. Whereas Johnson was lucky to have his Boswell, King Richard III was unlucky to have his Shakespeare. For the rest of us, we were very lucky.

I bought this book because while we had covered Richard II and Henry IV (Pt. 1) in my Shakespeare class, we did not read Richard III (my prof. just wasn't a huge fan). I love Shakespeare's history plays, and the discovery of Richard III's body sparked my interest. The copy is quality, contains plenty of footnotes (and a lengthy introduction) for a student or someone new to Shakespeare. The translation is good. I like the story even though I know some people that find it too far fetched in a few aspects. After all, this is a Shakespeare play...it's not made to be accurate or realistic. It's made to please the monarch and the monarch's censors.

The only downside is that sometimes there are so many notes on a page that there's very little play text. It's similar to what happens with study KJV Bibles, or study copies of almost anything written in middle or early-modern English. So, excellent for a student or someone that likes those extra notes, but if you're adept when it comes to Shakespeare or are used to reading works in early-modern English, then it may be cumbersome for you. Personally, I liked all the notes because I'm out of college, and without them I'd have to google anything I needed some context on. They're also nice for lending to others.
