Re: King Lear Module B
I'm in agreement with bec007. At my school we do Citizen Kane, rather than King Lear, but we had the same question on 'intense human relationships'. But most of the themes we dealt with in questions were related to power or the American Dream, relationships wasn't really a big one.
Anyway... the point of the module is to have your own personal reading of the text. We were told at school that it's okay to disagree with the question, even if it doesn't say "agree or disagree". In this module especially, you're free to disagree and say that you think the text is about something else. Because the question asked you to analyse at least one relationship, you still have to do that, but I'm pretty sure (and hoping I'm right, because this is how I approached it) you can state that you don't think it's that significant, because your interpretation is that ANOTHER major theme is what captivates audiences and creates enduring power.
The fact that it said 'evaluate' leaves the question open to your own interpretation and judgement.
