I have an essay to write about the theme of power and powerlessness in King Lear.
I know there's a lot in the play about it as its a central theme but I'm just really struggling to get started.
Could anyone suggest some points I could discuss, since "power" is so broad I'm struggling to pick out specific ideas.
