Richard III is one of the most enigmatic figures in English history. Was Shakespeare’s hunchback the real man and, if not, why was it so important to present him as evil? This course raises questions about truth, propaganda and tyranny in our own era and examines Richard in the context of the extraordinary times in which he lived, a period of enormous upheaval, uncertainty and change.

Arrange the Meetings: New groups need to decide where and when to meet, and for how long – whatever best suits members' particular situations.

Run your Group: Choose a secretary to liaise with WEA and your tutor, a Discussion Leader to chair meetings, a reporter to take discussion notes to send to your tutor, and maybe a librarian to look after the books.
