So, I was just asked for some Shakespeare help on Twitter. “Modern intepretation of Act 3 scene 2 possible?” asks a follower (who shall remain anonymous in case he didn’t want me posting this).
“…of what play?!” I asked, amused.
Turns out, Richard III. I had to admit, R3 is one of my guilty plays – and by that I mean, I’ve never seen it and don’t know enough about it, and for that I feel guilty. Had he asked about many of the other tragedies or comedies I may have had a shot, but the history plays have always been my weak spot.
So I turn to you geeks. What’s happening in Act 3 scene 2, and what sort of “modern interpretation” can you come up with (that perhaps hasn’t already been done to death)?
