King Lear Act 1 Scene
1,267 wordsWhat impact did Act 1 Scene 1 of King Lear have on you? The first scene of the first act of King Lear had a genuinely dramatic affect upon me. This first glimpse into the world of Lear and his subordinates sets the premise for the whole play, unravelling within the first few pages, themes which I believe will become increasingly evident.

If private properties were eliminated and all were made equal citizens, competition would cease as there would be no scope for [inequalities and injustices] in such a society (80).

Before I begin, let's bring some definition to this often nebulous term 'dating'. Webster defines dating simply as: 'to have social engagements with persons of the opposite sex'. In a casual sense, therefore, dating can certainly mean hanging out with the opposite sex for non-romantic purposes. Some of these...
