A2 OCR english literature exam -11 June 2015Watch
I'm also studying King Lear with The Wife of Bath/The Rivals
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 ...
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.
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.
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.
