there is a chance they can ask us to refer to anythingrink said:is there a chance they might ask us to refer to 3 productions?
Personally I believe the question will be oriented towards the readings and interpretations, for example Is King Lear still relevant in a culture with such complex social aspects or whatever.gabba_g said:ive written out a model response for Lear concerning it's contexts, interpretations and the play itself but im wondering how i should set out my response if the question asks to focus on just one character, or, how i would produce the play... in asking those questions are they still expecting us to talk about context?
A lot of students and teachers have said that they think the question for Lear will be more oriented around your interpretation of the play or a particular character... what do you think?
Well they can ask specific questions for each elective in the module, so there is no guarantee you will get a generalised one for all the texts. Also, all Lear essays should mention readings but the question will not always ask for them, and may not be directly about them. And regarding the feminist question, they can ask something of that style but you don't have to agree with it - you can work from the side of nihilist and family for instance and argue against the validity of the feminist interpretation as compared to your own etc. I don't think they will ask something like that, *but* it is possible.I hope that is right (the part about the question being asked about our interpretations)- otherwise, I'm.. well.. I won't do very well. It's unfair for them to ask about specific characters. And, not that I suppose that means they won't, don't the questions have to be the same for all critical texts- like so they can't specifically ask about, say, Regan? I don't know, I could be wrong
And can they actually ask us about readings? One of the practise questions at the beginning is specifically about a feminist reading... can they do that?
Haha Most of the people who did the King Lear question last year answered it - what exactly did you want to find out?Has anyone answered the 2004 question ??
