King Lear was really hard to understand at points and because we were only given a brief overview, it became harder at some scenes. I do agree that watching or expereinceing the play is better is than reader sometimes but because we did not read it my group came up with ideas to make it easier.
Stopping the movie and talking at significant points worked extremely well. This helped us understand the play from other people's persceptives and be able to ask questions for those parts that were more complex.
Another thing that my group utilized was sparknotes. During the play we followed along with the translated verison. This helped me personally so much; what the characters were saying actually made a little sense for once. I really enjoyed using this tool because it brought all areas of the story together.
By using multiple effective tools and the people around me, I strongly believe that me and my group will be able to use the points discovered very effectively and allow for a strong finish in this project.
