Comparison of Twelfth Night and King Lear
[ send me this essay ]
An 8 page paper comparing and contrasting these two Shakespeare plays. In terms of contrast, there are few of Shakespeare's plays that have more points of difference between them than "King Lear" and "Twelfth Night." "King Lear" is the darkest tragedy Shakespeare wrote; "Twelfth Night" is a rousing, bawdy comedy that has lost nothing in the 350 years that have passed since it was written. In spite of their obvious differences, there are similarities as well, the greatest of which is that all is not as it seems. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

King Lear's Britain / A World Ruled by Evil ?
[ send me this essay ]
A 10 page paper analyzing the twin plots and three character groupings in Shakespeare's play. The paper shows that each of Lear's characters has some goodness (or at least a readily-understood motivation for his misdeeds), and that it takes mitigating circumstances to bring out his or her wicked behavior. Thus, King Lear's Britain is not truly a world ruled by evil; it was Lear's sin in the beginning that sparks the later evil in the play. Bibliography lists 6 additional sources.

Jane Smiley's "A Thousand Acres": Departure From Shakespeare's "King Lear"
[ send me this essay ]
5 pages in length. Jane Smiley's "A Thousand Acres" has long been compared to Shakespeare's "King Lear"; while there are many similarities to the classic play, one can readily argue that there are just as many departures from "King Lear," as well. One of the most pertinent departures addresses women and their place in society, with the overt implications of fear and control represent the role women play in Smiley's "A Thousand Acres." Bibliography lists 2 sources.

The Fool in King Lear
[ send me this essay ]
A 4 page paper which discusses the character of the fool in King Lear. The foundation of the discussion is that of the fool having been referred to as 'the uncanniest character in Shakespeare.' This is analyzed as well as the incident of the fool leaving halfway through the story, never to appear again. The paper utilizes the work of Harold Bloom in 'Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human' as well as 'King Lear.' No additional sources cited.

Kingship And Downfall In Beowulf And Lear
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper comparing Beowulf and Shakespeare's King Lear in terms of the protagonists' deaths at the end of their respective works of literature. The paper observes that Beowulf's overconfidence caused him to die precisely as he wanted -- a hero -- while Lear's vanity caused him to die a tragic and humbled death. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
