9780141396651: Richard III

Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Romanian thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Richard III by William Shakespeare was edited for three audiences. The first includes Romanian-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL? or TOEIC? preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Romanian speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Romanian in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement? (AP?) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Romanian Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Romanian or English.

In his skilful manipulation of events and people - coercing the king into eliminating the Duke of Clarence, next in line to the throne; imprisoning the King s sons, princes Edward and Richard, in the Tower of London; and purging court of any who might oppose his rule - Richard is a chilling incarnation of the lure of evil and the temptation of power.
