These glimpses of hope seem to provide the reader with an underlying notion of human goodness that remains present, throughout the lurking presence of immorality and a

THE GENERATION GAP IN KING LEAR
THE GENERATION GAP IN KING LEAR
THE GENERATION GAP IN KING LEAR One of the underlying themes in Shakespeare’s play, King Lear is the concept of the generation gap. This gap is mainly illustrated between the family. The older generation is Lear himself, and the younger generation consists of his daughters Goneril, Regan and Cordelia. In the second plot of the play, Gloucester represents the older generation, and his sons, Edmund and Edgar exemplifies the younger generation. Both younger generations can be divided into two dist

Animal Ethics
Animal Ethics
Animal Ethics Animal Ethics Animal ethics is concerned with the status of animals, whereas environmental ethics concerns itself with the relationship to the environment.
