Shakespeare's Portrayal of Richard III exemplified Through the Senecan Tyrant, the Vice Figure, and the Machiavel To accomplish goals, in one's life, one must be determined and must have certain characteristics that avenge to one's aspirations. In the play Richard III, Richard III's goal is to ascend the throne. There are two ways that one can claim the throne: by birthright, or might. Since Richard III cannot claim the throne by right he must therefore take it by might. To accomplish this goal Richard, Duke of Gloucester, must be determined to achieve his goal at all costs. Also he must have the characteristics to meet his determination. Kings are generally thought to be beautiful, ...view middle of the document...

Richard's reign as king lasted only two years, and during this two year period Richard was never once happy, thus showing how the unjust soul will never be happy. His insecurities and fears worsened as he gained more and more power. The first scene of the play, Richard declares in a soliloquy, his plan to become king. In which he shows us for the first time a perfect example of the vice character. Richard clearly states that he is, "Deformed, Unfinished, and sent before my time./Into this breathing world scarce half made up"(1.1.19-20). As a villain Richard must be heartless, he cannot let his emotions interfere with his actions. Also he must be well organized and intelligent; a villain must know exactly how to act when the time calls for it. He must never let his emotions interfere with his actions. A villain must also be manipulative and persuasive so that if he is charged of a crime or if he finds himself in an unavoidable predicament he is able to talk his way out or assure people that he did not commit the crimes that are in question. A villain must also have scapegoats to use if he is discovered or if he is in a dangerous situation. Richard devised an awesome plan to become the King of England.Brilliantly, he executed his plan. Heartlessly, he executed his family, friends, and subjects. Richard did indeed display these characteristics and therefore fulfilled his goal to ascend the throne. With Richard's elder brother, King Edward IV, dying, Richard believes himself to be the most qualified person to rule. Him thinking that he is the most qualified to be king shows arrogance and boastfulness which thrives deep inside Richard. He sets his plan to ascend to the throne into action. First, he locked up the rightful heir, his own brother George, Duke of Clarence, in his quarters. Then he demonstrated his manipulation skills and began to fulfill his scheme. He tells Clarence that it is not the king that is locking him up in the tower, "Tis the lady Grey his wife that tempers him to that extremity" (1.1.63-65). This is a statement that turns out to be false, instead Richard hires two murderers to kill Clarence, which was executed perfectly. Once again Richard deceives his family and friends for his own well-being showing the evil and unbelievable thoughts that dash through his mind. His next step in his plan to claim the throne was to collect a bride. He had one woman in mind; a widow named Anne Neville. Anne who was formerly married to Edward, Prince of Wales, Henry VI's son, both of whom Richard had already murdered. He once more demonstrates his wonderful manipulative, and persuasive abilities to woo Anne to Marry him. This again being a perfect example of the vice character, Richard takes in great amounts of atonement in agitating the peace. In this he succeeded and he married Anne even though he killed her husband and her father. Why does Richard believe that he should be king? He seems to possess only one quality which...

In conclusion, the techniques of point of view prove largely unsuccessful in constructing the character of Paul in his entirety. These techniques do however reveal the stages and progression of Paul’s development throughout the novel.
