Shakespeare’s Villains is a series of blogs by Finding Shakespeare and our education team. We have spent the last ten weeks exploring some of Shakespeare’s greatest villains through items from the Shakespeare Centre Library and Archive and the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s Museum Collection.
For this final post Access and Interpretation Coordinator, Anna Griffiths, is looking at Edmund, the bastard son of Gloucester in King Lear.
If you have missed any of the posts on our ten villains and you would like to catch up, then take a look at our Online Exhibition, which has links to all the posts and Flickr galleries showing depictions of the characters from over the years.
If there is a Shakespeare villain who you would include in your own top 10 who we have not included in this series, please feel free to leave us a comment with your thoughts.
