Kareshan Mayurathan EN2 Richard III stylistic device analysis (1,2) The text at hand is an extract from the play "Richard III" (1663) in which Shakespeare illustrates Richard, Duke of Gloucester's rise to the throne through manipulation and deceit. In the second scene of Act 1, Lady Anne Neville accuses Richard of killing her husband, which he denies at first. Upon realizing this does not work however, Richard manages to convince Anne that it was all an act of love. At the end of the scene they are engaged. The power of language - by which means does Richard achieve this? In the beginning of the scene Richard uses simple language, mostly single sentence answers to counter Lady Anne's accusations (cf. I.2.13,17,20). Through this and the use of a more formal way of addressing Anne (cf. 1.2.6), he distances himself from her. He stays calm and direct by saying he "did not kill [her] husband" (1.2.20). Anne however continues to express her aggression and hatred towards him. In the next part of the extract, Richard changes tactics by admitting the murder and trying to justify his actions. The anaphora "Your beauty" (1.2.1-2) for example shows how he manipulates Anne through flattery and draws a veil over her brother's killing. The parallelisms in lines 9-12 add to this effect.

"[her] breast enclose[s his] poor heart" (1.2.35) he conveys that Anne completes him. Through this metaphor Richard further points out his love for Anne. Richard continues to exploit Anne's fragile emotional state by blaming her as an "accessory" (1.2.23) to his crime and saying he would kill himself too on her request (cf. 1.2.17). Through the epimone "thy love" (1.2.21-22) Richard justifies himself and causes empathy and guilt in Richard. Moreover, he paints himself as a "poor devoted servant" (1.2.37", portraying himself as inferior and completely succumbed to Anne's will, which inevitably makes her submit to his. And lastly, through the use of the second-person pronouns "thy" and "thine" (l. 2.20) Richard breaks the distance and expresses friendship, familiarity and love, which he, then again, uses as a means of manipulation. All in all, Shakespeare proves language to be an immense tool in the grasp for power in Richard III. Richard's ability to manipulate through the power of language becomes incredibly evident as he manages to alter Anne's strong and firm character into an extremely naive one. Shakespeare, once again, shows how Richard uses his intellect and eloquent voice3 as a means of deception and therefore to his advantage.
