Extending Lear: Mothers and The Road…

Two presentations given by Year 13 students Ethan and David. One considers the absent mothers in the play and the other is entitled “What need 1? The mirrored worlds of Lear and The Road”.

This is the first time the boys have presented to their peers in this way and the intention is not to use “exam style” essays but to stretch and explore.  I include the brief discussions of each presentation…  (I should say that The Road is not a set text this year – the reference came from a discussion of the eschatological nature of Lear and the Road…).
