      Part of Shakespeare’s genius and enduring relevance is the fact that his plays respond to the emerging trends and anxieties of early modern civilization. Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra, though political, prophetically foresee the demise of republicanism and the rise of universal empire and the bureaucratic state.   Shakespeare’s plays and poems teem with unique marital – and sometimes extramarital – unions.

In Richard III, Shakespeare invites us on a moral play draws us to identify with.

Sometimes he worked from the stories of comparatively recent Italian writers, such as Giovanni Boccaccio—using both well-known stories (Romeo and Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing) and little.
