Richard the Second Play

Written by on | Shakespeare

Richard the Second is one of William Shakespeare’s history plays. It is the first play of a tetralogy that is followed by Henry IV, Part 1; Henry IV, Part 2 and Henry V. This fascinating play isn’t shy on rich, florid text, and is one of the more profound history plays. I have listed below some links to learn more about the play, a character list, and some of the best monologues from the play.
