Model answer:

In Richard III, Shakespeare gives us a man intent on villainy in order to acquire power. He is immediately successful at gaining allies who are of his calibre and persuasion.

He therefore becomes isolated from his former ally, Buckingham and doomed to the fortune of other Machiavellian villains.
