Richard III has the status of a monster, in British culture, and the continuous popularity of Shakespeare’s play has done much to foster this. Deformity and distortion operate through this myth on many levels. This study is an essay in five ‘distortions’, tracking the way the play manipulates and explores fundamental human concerns; the body, history,, theatre, childhood and family and the mirrors and shadows of individual identity and self-knowledge.
