does anybody have any predictions for what questions might come up for King Lear?
blindness or tragic hero?
In previous years when Lear has been examined the questions have been open, to varying degrees, but broadly speaking they were based on:
2006 - (i) Style, and (ii) Open
2010 - (i) Theme/Open, and (ii) Character
There is little point in trying to guess, specifically, what will come up. You're better off having a good knowledge of the play; it's plot, style, characters (3 - 4) and its themes (3 - 4). Then, you can draw on this knowledge and mould it to answer a question.
I think a style technique question is due!
I did a revision course of King Lear and the teacher was an examiner and thinks style/ dramatic techniques and functions could come up. Also know your characters really well. Character questions come up a lot. :)
