The Greeks had practically conquered what was known of the world. The Renaissance period was marked by the reign of arguably the greatest monarch in English history, and the early twentieth century saw the rise of some of the greatest technological advances on record. Even though some would argue that we now live in one of the periods of great prosperity, there is not much room for a true tragedy in our society. We have tragedy in the form of the news every day. [more like spectacle] In addition to the historical and formal facets of tragedy, the use of plot is key.

Matt Teel states “Most good stories start with a fundamental list of ingredients: the initial situation, conflict, complication, climax, suspense, denouement, and conclusion.” It is really important to make the plot development as badass as possible to get the audience’s attention. Without a good plot development, Shakespeare’s plays would not be as remarkable as they are. Shakespeare uses similar plot developments in both of his plays, King Lear and Much Ado About Nothing. Shakespeare used a very clever plot to introduce the characters in the beginning of King Lear. He starts by telling about Lear, the aging king of Britain, decides to step down from the throne and divide his kingdom evenly among his three daughters.
