Sir Thomas More's History of King Richard II: A New Theory of the English Texts

The full text article is not available.

Abstract:

The differences among three of the “textually significant” English editions of Thomas More's History of King Richard III, two published by Richard Grafton in 1548 and 1550 and one by William Rastell in 1557, reflect Grafton's own religious and political beliefs and allegiances. An examination of Grafton's use of – and emendations to – Polydore Vergilio's Anglica Historia details his methods and sharply Protestant message.
