Shakespeares King Lear and Dantes Inferno make several specific assertions regarding the nature of human suffering. Some of these assertions may be placed in the category of “admonition”—that is, reproof, warning, or cautionary advice. Others register simply as lament.
Discuss the correspondences between the two works in their exploration of human suffering, their thematic mosaic of admonition and lament. In what ways are the works similar in what they seem to suggest about human suffering? In what ways do they differ? And most importantly, what are the implications of these differences? Why do these differences matter to us?
Choose the organizational approach to this topic that you feel best explores its issues, given the limitations of the assignments 1200-word length. Many rewarding approaches are possible. Be careful to substantiate the turns in your argument with specific references to specific episodes as well as direct quotations. Avoid relying too heavily upon ideas from lectures and discussions. Among the quotations you cite, you must include at least two from both King Lear and the Inferno that we have not covered in class.
