    cultural context exia


    We where given the task of writing points for cultural context over the Christmas break but I have no idea what cultural context is. Would anyone have an idea of what it is or what I'm supposed to write about regarding the texts for it?

    If you can it would be greatly appreciated.

      Cultural context is how the culture opperated at the time. You could write about the role of different aspects of the then society and society now, for example the role of women in your text and how this aspect of the cultural context affects them, another good one is religion, if your in 5th year and doing hamlet youll see how religion affects him in his quest for vengence, if your in 6th year and studying king lear Im afraid I dont know much about it.

      Hope this was helpful.
