Activity Overview


Storyboarding is an excellent way to focus on types of literary conflict. Have your students choose an example of each literary conflict and depict them using the Storyboard Creator.

In the storyboard, an example of each conflict should be visually represented, along with an explanation of the scene, and how it fits the particular category of conflict.


Examples of Literary Conflict from Richard III

MAN vs. MAN

Richard asks Lord Buckingham to kill the two young princes in the Tower of London. For the first time, Buckingham hesitates at Richard’s orders because the request is so heinous. Richard believes that Buckingham is weak and cannot be trusted, and Buckingham realizes he’s fallen out of favor with Richard. He flees to Wales and raises an army against Richard; however, he is captured, and Richard eventually has Buckingham beheaded.


MAN vs. SELF

As Richard goes to sleep the night before battle, he is visited by the ghosts of those whom he has killed: Prince Edward, Henry VI, Clarence, Rivers, Grey, Vaughan, the Princes, Hastings, Anne, and Buckingham. When Richard awakes, he is terrified, and realizes he hates himself, that he is guilty of murder, and that it is time to despair over what he has done.


MAN vs. SOCIETY

The people of England do not want Richard to be crowned king. While Buckingham tries to drum up support for a Richard III bid for the throne, the people all recognize Richard for what he really is: a dangerous man. Richard’s deeds and reputation precede him, and the people do not want him as their king.
