Forum Theatre

Part One: Please read the following paragraph about explaining Gorboduc and answer the questions.

Not that the abstinence from theatrical satisfaction is total: (i) the dumb-shows could well prove effective in production, and there are moments of genuine tension and conflict scattered throughout the tragedy, however, little characterization contributes to the effect. The first scene between Ferrex and his mother is brief but promises well, fraught as it is with suppressed hatred and the undertones of incestuous love, yet the long scene which follows is disappointingly tame, given the competing views advanced. Norton (if the scene is his) lacks the skill to convey temperament through traits of speech so that a stereotyped sameness informs the rival counselors’ speeches, which does little to relieve the prolixity of their replies to Gorboduc’s request for advice. (ii) It is also unfortunate that the King, having allowed them their say, decides not to arbitrate between his advisors’ views, but proceeds to announce his plans almost as if his advisors had never spoken.

1. To prove what is stated in the underlined part (i), please quote a place from the text to talk about “effects in production”. (about 300 words)
2. In the underlined part (ii), the author negatively evaluates the following characteristics about “that the King…” are “unfortunate”, please explain this characteristic positively. Please quote more specific texts. (About 400 words)

Part Two:
In the second half of the 16th century, there were many dramas and essays with the theme of land division. In addition to the theme of land division, a Duke of Cornwall and a Duke of Albany also appear in Gorboduc, so Gorboduc was called the pioneer of King Lear. What is the difference between Gorboduc’s and King Lear’s description of these characters? Please quote and discuss them more specifically than the text.
