NOW is the winter of our discontent. Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it. Richard III deals extensively with the themes of political corruption and dissimulation. Richard's reign is seen as a period in which nothing is sacred: neither on a political nor social level, nor on a personal one. Richard will stop at nothing not even at betraying his friends or murdering his kin to become king.
