    The play “King Lear” written by William Shakespeare can be told in many different types of literature theories such as the Feminist theory which consist of describing the differences between men and women, or the Marxist approach which includes the art, literature and ideologies. I chose to do the Psychoanalytic or Freudian theory as it is often called which is another form of literature theory. The Psychoanalytic theory is very similar to the Formalist approach. This theory encompasses essentially

    Freedom-Fighter, Martyr. These are just a few of the words that race through our minds when we hear the name of William Wallace. Over the past few hundred years popular culture has raised Sir William Wallace from the bloody battlefields of Scotland to a place on a pedestal among the greatest heroes of history. In this ascent, the line between the man and the myth has become blurred. So who was William Wallace?

    William Shakespeare's King Lear The locations in Shakespeare’s King Lear fall into three categories: inside a court, out in nature, and in-between nature and civilization. Lear himself also wavers between three states: sanity, senility, and the fine line between the two. These states of consciousness relate directly to the scenes’ locations. However, Lear’s insanity is not the fault of his location in the world; for the most part, he has control over his situation. The series of events in

    In King Lear the society and the control of his land made me go to the approach of Marxist. This means and involves the over scan of society and control of it.

In Shakespearean plays two types of illusion are manifest: the active deception of one character by others; and the inherent flaws in the perception of the viewer. The audience in King Lear bears witness to how characters can fail to perceive the world as it exists and instead only see an illusion; this idea is demonstrated in three different ways.

    Throughout King Lear, Shakespeare gives the reader small moments of human goodness to contrast the evil in the play. L.C. Knights describes it as "affirmation in spite of everything," (Coyle). These affirmative actions are clearly seen in response to the immorality, twisted values and evil that are so common throughout this play. These moments are used to give the reader an underlying faith in the human spirit despite the clear role of immorality and a lack of values. The instances of genuine

Human hearts respond with hardness and devaluing ones self when given no love. Lear is one such character who due to family circumstances relies on his daughters to provide him with love but when he finds that
