Shakespeare was a brilliant writer and businessman. He lived in violent, unsanitary times and he wrote popular entertainment. If he were living today, he might be an action movie director or a video game designer. Over 90% of Shakespeare’s audience could not read or write. It’s important not to put him up on a high, untouchable, fancy, academic pedestal.

Write an outline (or a full story, if you get REALLY into it) in the style of Shakespeare!
I need a complete story idea (Beginning, Middle, End) and your story must include ALL of the following:
1. A parent/child relationship
2. At least one “supernatural” element (ghosts, dragons, demons, whatever)
3. A needlessly complicated (aka Shakespearean) plan
please do not copy from internet and if you use the sources write it in the essay.
