The moment of redemption was able to actually regain the two kingdoms and allow Queen Elizabeth to reign. Actually I was expecting for Richmond to be the new king and yet I find the ending fitting considering that many had died with a man having a thirst of power.
What I did not like about the play was how Richard was allowed to escape from his crimes. I could not believe that the Duchess, Richard’s mother was unable to even impose discipline to her son considering she knows her son’s misbehavior. It seems that his thirst for power has escalated to the point of even trying to kill his own mother. I was terribly angry with Richard for planning to kill everybody even those who could not afford to defend themselves. I feel sorry for King Richard’s mother.
