Shakespeare's effect on Psychology

Shakespeare heavily influenced Sigmund Freud's work. 

Freud recognized Shakespeares' strong interest in the mind of man and applied Shakespeare's insight throughout his own psychoanalytic works.

When Shakespeare wrote, "There's no art to find the mind's construction in the face." Freud saw the potential that it was something he could open discourse on.

Richard III was about Richard of Gloucester who wants to be King of England. Richard was a jealous cripple who used manipulation and deceit in order to achieve his goal. 

He had murdered his brothers, nephews, and anyone who was opposed to him.
