King lair & things fall apart:
The focus of change;
The novel, things fall apart, and the play, King Lear, show situations of great personal change.(Wonk and Noyes, for example, from the novel, and, in the play, Lear, Cordelia, Regan, Goner, Edmund, Edgar and Gloucester). At the novel’s end, society has drastically changed, whereas in the play society is largely the same as at the beginning of the work.
In an essay of about 1000~1200 words, explain how forces of societal change sometimes are accented but sometimes are diminished by these works’ attention to personal situations. How is the comfort or discomfort of characters related to or separated from societal conditions? Which elements of the works point to or away from those societal conditions being considered as problems? How is the level of drama in these works connected to societal issues? Cite precisely from the texts in supporting your points.
