Shakespeare employs the use of certain gothic conventions which are typical in tragedies thus establishing the plays genre. Conventually Shakespeare could have employed the use of metaphors to imply the political unsettlement in the state of Denmark as their king has just died.

The play is consequently written not about the down fall of its hero but around the chronological stages by which Bolingbroke threatens, captures, and retains the crown. Throughout a tragedy play readers suffer with the hero and feel sympathy for the hero but it does not happen with Richard II. So the play cannot be claim as a tragedy. From the point of view of Harold Bloom, it can be mentioned that Richard II is not a character of a real tragic hero because of its having lack of the qualities of a tragic hero. In the same way he is an incomplete politician also.
