Richard II: Comprehensive Guide for A Level AQA B

Written entirely in verse, Richard II sees Shakespeare flexing his poetic muscles as he moves towards the mature mastery that characterises his greatest achievements. The central character of Richard is cruel, unjust and careless, but at the same time sensitive, intelligent and aware. Though less well-known than other big hitters, Richard II is sure to capture the imagination of students through the AQA B lens of Tragedy.
