    we haven't finished reading any of the texts so a bit freaked out tbh, but the comparison is so hard! Struggling to find points to compare other than love/marriage/stereotypes ...

    I think one of the key comparisons to make between The Wife of Bath/The Rivals (as well as love/marriage/relationships) is the humour through the language both authors use - especially with the women (WoB misquoting Bible and Mrs Malaprops 'malapropisms') - it seems like the authors are making quite the social comment about the education of women at the time!

    Interesting point came up today when we were talking about King Lear so thought I'd share it ~~~ Can Lear be considered the main character?
    My opinion is that he spends the majority of the play being acted on and so apart from his initial dividing into the three kingdoms he is not in charge of the plot line so to speak whereas another character like Edmund is far more pivotal to the plot line and as a result of his schemes a considerable amount of the play is as a result of his character.

    Bit late to the party, but I'm doing 'Tis Pity/Wife of Bath and The Tempest I'm finding it very difficult to think of themes for The Tempest when there have only been two past papers!

    Anyone else doing The White Devil and Marvell? I'm also doing King Lear

    Apparently my coursework's really good so I'm praying that I get full UMS or close in that. I want an A* in lit so badly but it's so unpredictable...irritatingly I could get a low B this year and get an A overall, but I need essentially full marks for an A*. Goddamn grade boundaries.

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what the grade boundaries are to get an A*/A raw marks wise?

    I'm doing King Lear for the first section and The Rivals and The Wife of Bath for the comparative piece.

    Honestly there is so much content to cover for King Lear. I'm overwhelmed by the amount of themes/ issues the play covers and critical content.

    I've found a link with some more possible questions for King Lear if anyone is interested.

    Has anyone started comparing The Rivals and The Wife of Bath in class yet? We've only managed to read the texts separately without making comparisons!

    Does anyone have the question from June 2014's paper on this topic? I can't find it anywhere!
