EDWARD AND RICHARD
THE TRUE STORY OF THE PRINCES IN THE TOWER
Northcote, The Murder of the Princes in the Tower (1786)
Anno Domini 1483
Edward and Richard, the eldest sons of the late King Edward IV – have been arrested and imprisoned in the Tower of London by their uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester. Uncle Richard soon accedes as King Richard III and embarks upon a reign of tyranny. Oddly enough, in the weeks following the Usurper’s rise, the Princes have vanished without a trace.
Ah, he is young; and his minority
Is put unto the trust of Richard Gloster,
A man that loves not me nor none of you.
"Recounts draw on the past. As does narrative fiction, but it also draws on the present and the predicted future as well. Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, for example, with all its innovative wonder, assumes that sapient beings will still wear uniforms in the twenty-third century."
Heart of Air
"Why is it that we come to respect the goliaths of history? Is it because they did great things, because they were great? Or is it because they were merely perceived as doing great things? Were they always great? Perhaps they were never actually great in the first place."
The Misrule of Henry VI
"My mantra for this piece was 'over before it starts.' Such could very easily be said about the reign of Henry VI; in fact, it could very easily be said that Henry's reign never really started. He was not a competent king."
