Shakespeare's Richard Ii
God, and LanguageeBook - 2010
This book presents an in-depth view of the extraordinary revisionist language Shakespeare gives to his most royal of all kings, from the time Richard falls dramatically out of favor with God. Readers will find this book most useful in seeking to disentangle the plays notoriously elaborate verbal presentation, but what the author brings out in connection with Richards approach to language should move performers themselves to seek to present in future a more creatively dynamic Richard than the one we have thus far been required to accept. Especially does this book help one to see more clearly how before Shakespeare's difficult re-emergence in his late plays, before all the tragedy, before the fall, there was God? John OMeara's work displays an alert and delicate sensitivity to language and metaphor Arthur Kinney, English Language Notes Cover Photo: by Reg Wilson The Royal Shakespeare Company Alan Howard as Richard II in the 1980 Royal Shakespeare Company Production at Stratford-Upon-Avon Back Photo by A.F.
