 Edge: RICHARD DAWKINS
RICHARD DAWKINS, elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society in May, 2001, is a gifted writer, who is known for his popularization of Darwinian ideas as well as for original thinking on evolutionary theory.
He has invented telling metaphors that illuminate the Darwinian debate: His book The Selfish Gene argues that genes-molecules of DNA-are the fundamental units of natural selection, the "replicators." Organisms, including ourselves, are "vehicles," the packaging for "replicators." The success or failure of replicators is based on their ability to build successful vehicles.
Richard Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist and the Charles Simonyi Professor For The Understanding Of Science at Oxford University; Fellow of New College; author of The Selfish Gene, The Extended Phenotype, The Blind Watchmaker, River out of Eden (ScienceMasters Series), Climbing Mount Improbable, Unweaving the Rainbow, The Devil's Chaplain, and The Ancestor's Tale.

 Richard the Third - Reviews on RateItAll
The character of Richard is one of Shakespeare's finest achievements, despite, in all likelihood, bearing little resemblance to the historical figure.
There is some evidence that Shakespeare wrote the play to curry favour with the ruling Tudors, and in so doing, transformed Richard into one of the most engaging monsters in literature.
To digress slightly, there is an excellent filmed version of this play, set it in a fictional 1930's Britain, with Richard and his cronies as usurping fascists.
