some interesting ideas about endurance.
3. Like I started to mention, Slack has been very helpful in getting more ideas about the play, ideas of how to view the play, and different resources people have found. I have enjoyed the reminders to talk with others about Shakespeare, and love hearing the stories from my classmates, as more opinions about Shakespeare or the play always seems to open up ideas to greater understanding. I do seem to read at different times than other people, so commenting appropriately has seemed harder than I had hoped it would be.
4. Policy: Though many see Cordelia as Christ-like figure in King Lear, Gloucester should be the character that best exemplifies Christ the most due to his sacrifice.
Definition: Even though many have made references to Christianity through King Lear, the play is a representation of ideas of astrological thought and nihilism based on the characters own beliefs.
Comparison: Though Gloucester can be seen as Christ-like in his sacrifice and as one of the only characters who shows kindness, he actually isn't a good model of Christian living because of his adherence to astrology and superstition and his inability to endure.
Evaluation: Despite Edgar's positive intentions, it was actually bad that he let Gloucester think he'd been saved off the cliffs, simply because it wasn't a beneficial lie.
Casual: Although Edgar's falling out of the family seemed to come due to Edmund, it actually resulted from a greater problem of communication error between Gloucester and Edgar long before the events of King Lear.
