The assignment: to creatively teach the class about events and motifs in an act from King Lear

It ranges from Shakespeare to Orwell to Laurie Halse Anderson. And I just learned that Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” was inspired by Frankenstein: WIN!

The list notes the songs that have been confirmed as inspiration for a song, but also includes many songs that are just thematically relevant to use as discussion or analysis points.
