I am worried that the critical theory that we choose will not relate to King Lear at all. There are not any obvious connections that I can see between our research and notes and the play. If we are going to find conduction I think we will have to use the Marxism Theory in a very broad term. Maybe we could assess the differences between the joker and the royal family or the rise and fall and then rise again of Edgar. How he starts off as the eldest legitimate son and then loses it all and then latter regain the title and station he originally possessed and more. Or that fact that the family that cared for the lords land assist him when he is blind and no one else will help him. Marxism in what I understand from the articles we read is about the power struggle of different economical classes. However in King Lear there is mainly one class , the highest class on the food chain so there is not a large range of people to look at. And those of a lower class have very minor parts or are more in with the court then the regular lower classes of the time. After the death of the Fool things started moving quickly and became difficult to understand to I started to fallow along on spark notes to get a better understanding of the piece.
