Types Of Honor In Henry IV

Decent Essays
1 Henry IV has sparked my interest in the philosophical issues deeply rooted within the play. The philosophical question of "what is honor?" is personified within three of the main characters: Prince Hal, Hotspur, and Falstaff. In my creative piece, I want to explore the notion of three types of honor within a letter from Hal's love interest. I chose to write a love-letter firstly because I was inspired by the relationship of Lord and Lady Macbeth. I wanted to recreate that kind of relationship with Prince Hal and a love interest.
The letter is a response to a previously sent letter by Prince Hal. The relevance to Shakespeare is that, whether or not people acknowledge it, he was a philosopher exploring the concepts of his time within his plays.
