During the nineteenth century, King Lear was thought to be unfit for the stage. Discuss how this view
derived from that era’s realistic expectations for theatrical representation. Describe how Shakespeare’s
own theatre was not devoted to realism, and how the play only returned to theatrical prominence when
modern practitioners began to once again employ the theatrical conventions of the early modern
period. Be sure to mention:
The proximity of the audience.
The lack of realistic scenery or stage effects.
You must address ALL of the issues in the above prompt, incorporating this information into well-
The title King Lear must be italicized (not underlined or put in quotation marks) every time you use it

You must quote directly from the play in your essay. This means from the written text of King Lear,
Broadview Anthology of British Literature Edition, ISBN 978-1-551-119670. Follow the quotation
guidelines for Twelfth Night as described above. If you only quote from King Lear, no Works Cited page
is needed. Where differences occur between Quarto and Folio texts, the Broadview edition lists both
versions. You can quote from either one and list the line numbers from either one. For the purposes of
this paper, there is no need to specify whether you are quoting from Quarto or Folio.
The Professor’s lecture notes for Lear are posted on Canvas to help you write this essay. If you choose to
quote from any of the published works cited in these lecture notes, you must do so in proper MLA

In your main post, first provide the title of the poem you’ve chosen. Then, after reviewing the Online Learning Resource “How to Analyze a Poem,” write a brief summary: in no more than three sentences, identify the basic content of the poem. Next, determine at least three key elements of the poem: narrator, setting, tone, imagery, etc. Finally, discuss what stood out for you about the poem, what you most liked (or didn’t) about it, and if/how its meaning resonated with you. Make sure your response isn’t just a bulleted list of elements, but a unified discussion.
Your response should be substantive, addressing each required part of the forum prompt.[supanova_question]

To Vape or not to Vape? Is Vaping a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes?
Choose to be Pro or Con
Proponents (pro) believe- Vaping is a safer alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes. They do not contain the many known carcinogenic ingredients that cause chronic disease and death. They also allow people a method of smoking cessation that will help them quit the use of nicotine altogether.
Opponents believe (Con)- E-cigarettes are potentially explosive devices that addict teens and young adults to nicotine and most likely cause unknown serious health problems.
Research 3 Key Pro or Con points about the Vaping debate depending on what position you choose. You will only represent either the Pro side or the Con side. NOTE: You can take either side of the issue despite your personal beliefs.
Make sure you indicate whether you are representing the Pro position or Con (example: I am taking the Pro position because……) position then:
List/describe your 3 key points. Make sure you include why you believe these points (you must back up your opinion with at least one reference for each point!).
When you respond to other students’ posts make sure you also back up your thoughts/opinions with referenced material (at least one cited reference for each reply).
