This book presents an in-depth view of the extraordinary revisionist language Shakespeare gives to his most royal of all kings, from the time Richard falls dramatically out of favor with God.

Readers will find this book most useful in seeking to disentangle the play's notoriously elaborate verbal presentation, but what the author brings out in connection with Richard's approach to language should move performers themselves to seek to present in future a more creatively dynamic Richard than the one we have thus far been required to accept.

Especially does this book help one to see more clearly how before Shakespeare's difficult re-emergence in his late plays, before all the tragedy, before the fall, there was-God.

"John O'Meara's...work...displays an alert and delicate sensitivity to language and metaphor..." Arthur Kinney, English Language Notes
