    Yeah I'd just learn different quotes for each theme so you use them for anything! I only use 1 or 2 critic views. And with context I like watching YouTube videos online about them also bbc radio 4 have two good discussions called "Lear" and then "Machiavelli: devil or democrat?" Definitely recommend!

    I'm doing Wife of Bath as well but I'm comparing it with Sheridan's The Rivals. I think your technique sounds quite good. I actually need to start making notes I don't know where to start :O

    Same, there's too much! But i might start this saturday and just go over everything that I need to know about the texts throughout easter, then just practice writing essays as timing is a issue for me!

    So for King Lear, what are the themes? I'm thinking compassion, nothingness, nature, competition
    Missed anything?
