Review: Henry VI, Part Three by William Shakespeare
Henry VI, Part Three by William Shakespeare
My rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Attempting to compress 10 years of historical and dramatic events into approximately three hours is not an easy task. Overall, Shakespeare did an okay job even though he had to do a lot of fudging with events to create a drama filled play. While the duel between Kings was the primary arc of the play, Shakespeare built up Richard for his truly villainous turn in Richard III.
