Project #47175 - William Shakespeare

Assignment 2 (Two-page length) [Due in Week Three]

In Richard II, we meet one of several prophetic speeches in the play, In Act 2, Scene 1, Lines 31-68 on pages 340-41, we have a highly significant speech of John of Gaunt about England as a location, described as a garden. In your two-page analysis comment on Gaunt's description, and relate it other passages in the play that specifically relate to the concept of gardens. What is Shakespeare trying to convey through the imagery?

  1. When you quote from a play, divide lines of verse with slashes the way you would if quoting poetry. You can tell a passage is in verse by examining it to see if every line starts with a capital letter, regardless of whether the line starts a sentence. 

    Example: At the end of the play, Richard tries to regain his kingdom by imagining his thoughts as his subjects, "And these same thoughts people this little world,/ In humours like the people of this world" (V.i.9-10).
