A2: Compare and Contrast Heaney's 'Burial at Thebes' and Shakespeare's 'King Lear' Watch
THE DIVINE, NATURAL AND HUMAN ORDER
I have to....
- compare the classical concept of an ordered world with that of Shakespeare's time e.g. 'Divine Right of Kings', 'Great Chain of Being';
- compare Creon and Edmund as examples of impiety (Creon rejecting traditional acts of rememberance and reverence, Edmund refusing to accept his place in the social and natural order);
- compare the structured, hierarchical nature of classical and Shakespearean societies.
Some notes on this please??
(P.S this has to be handed in very soon)
