  1. "Richard III is a study in evil." Discuss Richard's role as a tragic hero.

    He would also be witty and self-consciously theatrical. Examples of Richard?s wit and cruel humour can be seen throughout the play and is reinforced through his use of word play adding to the dramatic irony of the scenes e.g. when he tells Clarence that his ?imprisonment shall not be long?. The audience, unlike Clarence know that this is a reference to Clarence?s foreseeable death which Richard explained to us in his earlier soliloquy. His witty nature, it could be argued, is a desirable quality but by the end of the paly his wit deserts him, for example, when he does not manage to convince Elizabeth to marry her daughter.
