Essay, 2014

7 Pages, Grade: 2,7


Abstract or Introduction

This essay concentrates on the characteristics and behaviours of the banished Henry in King Richard II, in fact on his personal attributes that he shows to return from exile and seize the throne from his cousin Richard as the young and ambitious Duke of Lancaster. By and large it researches which image Henry presents of himself in Shakespeare’s King Richard II. Are there certain ethnical values recognisable in his behaviour that are really important to him? In which way is he dealing with his allies and his enemies? Are there any characteristics noticeable that were clearly necessary for his success against Richard? What are his actual intentions?
