Shakespeare Unbard Episode 05. Richard III, Part One....oops, I mean Henry VI Part Three

Henry VI Part III might have had a better fate if Shakespeare had called it Richard III, Part One. Although Richard III has become one of the more popular plays in the canon, it is a far more rewarding work when one studies it in relation to Henry VI Part Three. Joel Fishbane discusses the play and why it's better than you think. Also: the play is summarized in one minute and he reviews the BBC's Hollow Crown.


In this episode, you'll hear quotes and clips from:
