SHAKESPEARE'S VILLAINS


William Shakespeare created a lot of captivating characters, and most of them are the villains. They show the worst of human characteristics: ambition, jealousy, hatred, resentment, malignity … all of the ugly things that bring out the worst in all of us. In some cases, it is rather disquieting  to think that a fictitious character  can be capable of such horrors. 



  
I have just found an attention-grabbing article about Shakespeare’s greatest villains. I hope you will enjoy it!
Then, if you are interested, you can see a great interview with Kevin Spacey on Richard III which was staged at The Old Vic, London,  in 2011.
