This article describes in brief the why and how humour thrived during the thousands of years that man (and women) civilised themselves. The article treats humour as was seen in Biblical times, during Greek and Roman times; in the writings of Shakespeare and Dickens. There is even a hint of…
What's a hero? What makes someone great? Does having a superhuman ability make someone great? Out is there more to it? This is a story I wrote for a contest. The prompt was to write a story based on a literature quote. I used the greatness quote from Shakespeare's "Twelfth…

I spread the dreams under your feet. Step Softly. As you are treading on my dreams.
For anyone who has read or is familiar with Shakespeare's Hamlet, this is a soliloquy I thought up for the character of Horatio. The poor man is torn and worried about his friend. (I decided to give writing in Shakespearean a shot).
Just like the Jocasta Assignment, but this revolves around Julius Caesar of William Shakespeare. There are three choices in the assignment but I picked the one where Julius will try to persuade Brutus that he is thinking about the citizens, and thus, gaining Brutus' approval.
William and his mortal enemy are about to reach the climax of their decades-old dispute and William's wife only adds fuel to the fire. A new take on a world-famous writer. What really happened?
I've been reading some Shakespeare recently, and that has made me want to write some sonnets. Sure, iambic pentameter can be a bit tricky sometimes, but sonnets have been fun recently. Normally I hate sonnets because of all of the rules, but whatever. Here is the first sonnet of my…

Thank you, history, for the orgy of wise words you’ve kept for us, stowed deep and wide in your voluminous anals. Wisdom (like knowing how to spell ‘annals’) is always a precious commodity … especially these days ...
Hi, my name is Peter Alcock and this is a poetic short story about a man who falls into darkness and loses his way. I have done this for a "Religion and Ethics" assignment at my school in Ormeau.
I wrote this monologue as part of my English coursework and honestly I love it...partly because it got me an A* but then again I love the work of Shakespeare. :) BTW I'm quite proud of the last two paragraphs because they are in iambic pentameter.
This is an essay I wrote for school. Personally, I think this is one of my best peices of work so far! The topic was to do with ones emotions in relation to creativity - I spread my butter pretty thin on sticking to topic . . . Can you…
I recently watched my school put on the Shakespeare play, "Much Ado about Nothing" and I loved it. I love Shakespeare (with the exception of Romeo and Juliet) and I love Shakespearean language. I think it's so beautiful and the basis of what I believe to be beautiful literature. I…
Based upon the film "Shakespeare in Love" Maria was royalty before she met him, the love of her life. The city of London loved her. She was kind to peasants and gave them gifts. In the home her and her brother rarely quarreled, and their mother left both of them…
