Subject: RE: Distortion of History in Folk Song
I like the Yorkies better myself. But I think Wiliam Shakespeare had more to do with Richard's image problem. And I don't think your man Will would have been foolish enough to write a play putting Richard III in a good light, no matter what Thomas More had written. Not with Lizzie on the throne.
