    They're are very few past exam questions for this play, does anybody have any predictions on what could come up? Whether thematic or character based.

    hadn't thought of him! I'm sort of ruling out Cordelia, I'll get clued up on the Fool

    Cordelia came up last year and Gloucester the year before that! My teacher also thinks it will either be the fool or Edgar/Edmund!

    Any predictions for the theme based question?

    Fool, Kent, G+R most likely character qs. So all very straightforward.
    Theme, who knows. Doesn't really matter, it's a very easy play.

    This course has disappointed me a bit, it is much more basic than AS.

    I think loyalty could come up as a theme, but would love an Edmund/Edgar character question

    Edmond and Edgar have not come up yet.
    So I am thinking Edgar, Edmond or Fool.
    Theme....?! Who knows!

    I wouldn't worry about the fool, if he comes up i'm going to do 'Lear's Shadow' when Lear asks him if he's cold and how it's the first time he shows compassion for anyone else then goes back to himself the line after; when Lear says 'my poor fool is hanged' and the connection between Cordelia and the Fool.

    i'm praying for the fool to come up, he's the easiest character in my opinion because he is the most objective within the whole play

    Character question was on the dramatic presentation of Cordelia and the theme question was brutality
