Description

Page 12: The opening of the dialogue between Richard and Lady Anne in Cibber’s adaptation. Note the material is all either Shakespeare’s words (indicated by italics) or what Cibber calls “generally [Shakespeare’s] thoughts” rephrased by Cibber.

Page 15: The concluding exchanges between Richard and Anne – and criticism of Anne by onlookers – are by Cibber alone.
