Have you been hurt in a public place in Wolverhampton?
Wolverhampton is a city in the West Midlands. If you live there and are trying to get involved in creative writing but are having trouble coming up with plots and characters, it is always a good idea to be inspired by the best. In other words, you cannot go far wrong if you study a Shakespeare play to spur you on. An interesting one to use is ‘The Tragedy of Richard II’ which was probably written in 1594 or 1595. Talk to us today if you’ve been hurt in a public place in Wolverhampton.
If at this point, you think it is a bit cheeky to use Shakespeare’s work to give you ideas for your own writing then you may be surprised that Shakespeare used Raphael Holinshed’s ‘Chronicles of England, Scotland and Ireland (1587) to inspire him. Obviously, some events are embellished and some are left out but he uses the idea of it to craft his play.
If you learn one thing about writing from studying Richard II, it will be about character as the main character is indeed intriguing. He was born in 1367 and reigned from 1377 to 1399. This means that he became king at the age of 10. It is probably that which caused his great downfall as he would be bowed down to and agreed with from an early age even when he was wrong. It is not a good way to develop into a mature adult.
The play is about the fight for the crown between Richard II and his cousin, Henry Bolingbroke. However, we are not sure if Bolingbroke would have ever done that if Richard II had not banished him from England at the beginning of the play. Although the play is set in the 14th century, it is about human nature, which does not change. This means that you simply have to look at how the two characters act and react to each other and then create two characters who do the same thing.
If you decide to buy a copy of the play which has been put on dvd let’s hope that while you are on the way to the shops that you do not have a car accident which is not your fault.
