Ding Ding Ding...I think I have the right idea!

Zunder, "Shakespeare and the End of Feudalism..." -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"Lear's betrayal of feudal values involves a critique not only of the traditional aristocracy but also of the contemporary monarchy: of James I."

I first blogged on the other article, and I must say my point was right on the dot! After completing this article it just further proved my point that history has a huge part in all literature whether we realize it or not. To think that King Lear was all about the fall of Feudalism, it really is a mind blowing thought, and with the evidence that Zunder provides it is totally valid. Both articles were very thought provoking and just go to show how imporant symbolism in a literary work can really be. !

Ha Bethany, you were "right on the dot" :-) But in all seriousness, history was so crucial to literature that we are now reading. And it's so interesting to see how Shakespeare was able to relate what was going on in Britain to the literature he was writing.
