A Lady’s Unladylike Words

Every Monday here at The Bard and the Bible, we feature one of Shakespeare’s many richly-worded insults.

This week we turn again to Lady Anne’s exchange with Richard of Gloucester in Shakespeare’s great history play, Richard III:

Thou unfit for any place but hell (Richard III, I.2.114)

You might want to be more careful with this insult than with some others.
