1- TRANSCRIBE THE SPEECH

-You are not worth even the flecks of dust that blow in your face. I fear your nature. A person that condems what it comes from. Cannot be of the right mind. You will be cut off from yourself.

-What is right to someone that sees things wrongly wont see what is right as what is right.You can only savour what is dirty if you yourself are dirty. What have you done? Your an animal. Your favour a grioucous older man. Whose nature even a wild beast would want to be around. How are you so barbaric when your father is so the opposite? You will be punished because that is the way of things and your crimes are so hanous some divine intervention must happen.

 

2-EXAMINE THE USE OF THE WORD ”TIGERS” TO DESCRIBE R AND G. WHAT DOES THAT WORD IMPLY? ANALYSE ITS CONNOTATIONS

Tigers not daughters- I guess he’s trying to say that. They are acting like beasts, animals rather than how a daughter of that time must have been expected to treat their father.

  1. WHAT PICTURE IS PAINTED OF LEAR IN THIS SPEECH? WHAT SIGNIFICANCE THINGS DO YOU NOTICE ABOUT THE LANGUGE USED TO DESCRIBE HIM.

He is painted as someone very good and does not deserve what has happened to him. ”whose reverence even a lugged bear would lick” He is described with an attitude entirely different to what we have seen him act throughout the play.

  1. Kine, you have the basis of some great points here. I would like to see you develop these further- how is Lear painted as someone who was respected? What is it that Albany says that really makes this clear? Examine further the metaphor he uses to express this view.

    I would say the same for your “tigers” analysis. Dig further into the connotations around the word and see if you can explain the parallel between Goneril and Regan and this metaphor further.
