Essay Topic 1
The play has been discussed as both a historical and tragic drama. In your opinion, which genre's elements were more relevant by the end of the play?
Essay Topic 2
Richard and Bolingbroke exuded an "opposite parallelism" throughout the entire play. When Richard was powerful, Bolingbroke was not, and vice versa. The degrees of this parallelism seemed to correlate with one another throughout the story as well. Discuss this connection using examples from the play and what it meant for the story.
Essay Topic 3
It is probably most peoples' answer that Bolingbroke would make a better king than Richard when it comes to real life. However, Richard certainly fills the shoes of a king's character better. In other words, his character did a better job of "being a king" on stage. Discuss this difference and what Shakespeare might have meant including it with the play.
