Theme The allure of evil: -Richard says the reason of his wicked days is his deformity, because he was not very good looking.The story does not explore the cause of evil in the human mind, it explores the ways he uses to manipulate, control and injure people for his own benefit. It is admirable the way he manipulates others, with such a charismatic personality, as if he was perfect inside, people did not care about his looks when he used his words, because they were penetrating, as a charismatic leader he told people what they wanted to hear, so they would like him even more. Characters allow themselves to fall into his trap, just like Lady Anne did, she knew he was going to kill but even though she went with him.
