    I have a quick question. If I were to make a direct link between a play and the one I am studying (let us say, King Lear and Othello, for example) it would count as AO4- social context, yes? But if I were to make direct comparisons; e.g, Edmond and Iago and draw parallels within the two, would this be AO3 or AO4?

    I'm doing King Lear and then Blake and Volpone for the comparison... haven't had a comparison lesson since the beginning of March so having to self-teach pretty much ... anyone else?

    For King Lear, I'm praying that either roles of women/patriarchy, edmund, or morality come up! Knowing my luck it'll be boring Edgar.

    I'm studying King Lear and Blake/Tis Pity for comparison
    I'm doing Blake/Tis Pity too!

    How are you revising? I'm finding Blake much harder than Tis Pity... So much to learn!

    Ah my teacher told me not that many schools/colleges so those two together as they're so different! Not sure why she picked it for my school then

    Well I've been revising King Lear this week so haven't done much of Tis Pity & Blake but I am going to try revising like this next week:

    Character analysis (for Tis Pity) mindmaps with relevant quotes
    Blake poem mindmaps with annotations linking back to themes
    Prominent theme mindmaps
    Critics and context notes

    I'm kinda clueless on how to revise tbh so I'm just going to try this and see how it works. I'm finding Blake hard too but Tis Pity is much longer!

    How bout you? How are you thinking of revising?

    I made a post with some Blake ones, though there's a few Tis Pity critics too as that's what I'm studying - ignore those!

    Definitely, but call it a 'patriarchal' society. Hence why there's no Mrs Lear or Mrs Gloucester

    Does anyone want a The Rivals study pack I bought a few weeks ago? I could email it around to you guys later on tonight. It's been so helpful to me in looking at the major themes and studying the context and characters. If you're doing TR/WOB, it has a lot of points for you to compare with.
    yes please! [email protected] Thanks so much!
