Choice #2, King Lear

Shakespeares King Lear was produced during the period when King James was pursuing the union of Scotland and England into the kingdom of Great Britain. How does Shakespeares tragedy appear to comment or reflect upon this political project?

Research: Do some historical research into the period, but dont be overly distracted by it. Use the research to support the presentation of the idea in the play itself, so you will also have to analyze particular scenes from the play to demonstrate your findings.

See Development of the Paper below for additional information to help you organize and develop this paper.

General Format for the Paper

There are additional resources available to you on writing literary analysis and the MLA style found in the Webliography (Writing about Literature) and at the UMUC Librarys (http://www.umuc.edu/library/libhow/mla_examples.cfm).

Development of the Paper: Overall, the paper should have a strong thesis statement contained in an introductory paragraph; an organizational pattern that reflects control over the presentation of your ideas and information as you work through the development of your topic; body paragraphs that develop the thesis by using strong topic sentences and appropriate references to the research and/or the text; a concluding paragraph that concludes the paper itself; strong control over sentence level concerns, including stylistics, documentation style, and grammatical concerns.

Sources: At least three sources are needed. Please use at least one source from the UMUC Librarys databases. Any source from the Internet must be vetted and appropriate for academic use.

Here are some sites to help you:
