Stephen Greenblatt's Tyrant shines a light on today's political stage -- and the theatre of some of Shakespeare's most dreaded tyrants. My review is on @Medium. Thanks for reading.
A great oblique study -- Shakespeare was a genius at being oblique -- of how societies fall under the rule of someone who demonstrates Richard III's "limitless self-regard, law-breaking, pleasure in inflicting pain, and desire to dominate," and what can be done about it.
A thin volume that examines the traits of tyrants through the lens of characters in the plays of Shakespeare, Greenblatt's accessible and fascinating book is the best of both the British Lit and PoliSci classes you took in school but completely forgot about.
