History of King Richard III

Publication Date: September 29, 2010

Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century

You know who I hate more than Thomas More? Nathaniel Hawthorne.


Alright, you probably want more detail than that. Fine. The Norton excerpts part of More's history of Richard III, and it's exceedingly strange: basically, they just pulled out two pages that describe, at length, one of Richard's mistresses. That's it. Richard's not even in it. The entire excerpt is devoted to this woman and how hot she was.

There. Detail. Can I go now

Author: Thomas More • Year: 1518 • Info: Wikipedia
