What is the true meaning of power? Are some simply born to it or can it be acquired like a skill? Does it always breed corruption and greed or can it be a force for good? From kings to prisoners and from battle-fields to courts, Shakespeare’s peerless understanding of power and its repercussions remains as pertinent today as it has ever been.
Selected from Macbeth, Julius Caesar, A Winter’s Tale, Measure for Measure, Henry V, Richard II
