John Philip Kemble was an ambitious and successful stage actor in London, perhaps most well-known for his turn as Shakespeareâs Macbeth. Kemble passionately disagreed with the posthumous work of Thomas Watley, Remarks on Some of the Characters of Shakespeare (1785), particularly Watleyâs representations of some of Shakespeareâs greatest villains, Richard III and Macbeth. This title, first published in 1786 (this reprint of the second edition first published in 1970), presents Kembleâs nuanced criticisms of the characters leaving the impression that the villainies of Macbeth and Richard III are indeed similar. A historically important literary reaction, this title will be of interest to students of English literature and literary criticism.
