What was Shakespeare's second play?
It’s difficult to determine what
exactly William Shakespeare’s second play is, but it is widely believed that it
was Richard III, and was preceded only by the 3 different parts of Henry VI.
Both of these plays appear in the First Folio, which is a common term for the
collection containing the earliest works of Shakespeare.
Richard III was written circa 1591 and it portrays the
rise to power of the Machiavellians and the reign of King Richard III, albeit a
short one. The play is almost never performed in an abridged version and if
there are any characters that are omitted from the play, it is most often
Margaret. However, other lines are then usually added to establish the
relationship between the characters.
