Re: King Lear Module B
Qft.borkoborko said:In response to your reply.. I'm sorry but suck it up! It is about a close analysis of text, so all the central themes in the play are important and yes it is how you interpret it, but readings are not a close analysis of it, they are other peoples analysis of it and you just using that to create your own interpretation.
We got told over and over again by our school that you should complelty forget about readings, and focus on the actual play itself!
By looking at a close analysis of text, and Lear which you should have specifically, and throughout a whole year of work, you would have seen that this play is based alot around intense human relationships, they are the basis for all your other nihlism etc jargon blah blah.
Qft.Teddy Lee said:Finally someone talking sense. Seriously, whoever thinks it was too centred on familial relationships, get over it. The module is about a critical study of text and human relationships are an important component in the play itself.
Our teacher spent all year telling us how king lear was going to be the hardest module, how they could pick on any little character, theme or scene (our trial was based on the opening of the play). Readings supplement the play itself and your interpretation should come from the play and you could have fit your nihilistic reading in fine. The question was far better than the generic ones for the other modules.
