Subject: 14.1756 Determined to Be a Villain
Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1756 Determined to Be a Villain

I for one enjoyed Larry Weiss's suggestion that Richard 3's "determined
to prove a villain" might mean that he's destined to be one rather than
resolved to be one.

However, I don't think anyone credited David S. Berkeley's note
"'Determined' in Richard III, I.i.30" in Shakespeare Quarterly 14 (1963)
pages 483-4, which said it first.
