According to that article:

- In Julius Caesar, Shakespeare presents us with the spectacle of a man becoming a god. But in Richard II he permits us to witness a god becoming a man. As a consequence of what one might call political logic, Richard was thought to be , and thought himself to be, somehow divine: to have the right and the capacity to rule men, a king ought to have a superior nature, must be a god or the representative of a god; because he must be, he is. The play tells the tale of Richard’s dethroning and his agony as he faces the moaning human condition for the first time.
