Sorry for the hiatus. I was put on a support contract to help California Energy Commission staff write the updated code version of the Residential Compliance Manual and that took me off line for a few months. I have a newfound respect for the hard working folks at the Energy Commission.
Act I[ edit ] King Lear of Britain, elderly and wanting to retire from the duties of the monarchy, decides to divide his realm among his three daughters, and declares he will offer the largest share to the one who loves him most.
The eldest, Gonerilspeaks first, declaring her love for her father in fulsome terms. Moved by her flattery Lear proceeds to grant to Goneril her share as soon as she has finished her declaration, before Regan and Cordelia have a chance to speak.
He then awards to Regan her share as soon as she has spoken. When it is finally the turn of his youngest and favourite daughter, Cordelia, at first she refuses to say anything "Nothing, my Lord" and then declares there is nothing to compare her love to, nor words to properly express it; she speaks honestly but bluntly, that she loves him according to her bond, no more and no less.
Infuriated, Lear disinherits Cordelia and divides her share between her elder sisters. The Earl of Gloucester and the Earl of Kent observe that, by dividing his realm between Goneril and Regan, Lear has awarded his realm in equal shares to the peerages of the Duke of Albany Goneril's husband and the Duke of Cornwall Regan's husband.
Kent objects to Lear's unfair treatment of Cordelia; enraged by Kent's protests, Lear banishes him from the country.
Lear then summons the Duke of Burgundy and the King of France, who have both proposed marriage to Cordelia. Learning that Cordelia has been disinherited, the Duke of Burgundy withdraws his suit, but the King of France is impressed by her honesty and marries her nonetheless.
The King of France is shocked by Lear's decision because up until this time Lear has only praised and favoured Cordelia " He reserves to himself a retinue of one hundred knightsto be supported by his daughters.
Goneril and Regan speak privately, revealing that their declarations of love were fake, and that they view Lear as a foolish old man. Gloucester's bastard son Edmund resents his illegitimate status, and plots to dispose of his legitimate older brother Edgar. He tricks his father with a forged letter, making him think that Edgar plans to usurp the estate.
Kent returns from exile in disguise calling himself Caiusand Lear hires him as a servant. Lear discovers that now that Goneril has power, she no longer respects him. She orders him to reduce the number of his disorderly retinue. Enraged, Lear departs for Regan's home.
The Fool reproaches Lear with his foolishness in giving everything to Regan and Goneril, and predicts that Regan will treat him no better. Act II[ edit ] Edmund learns from Curan, a courtier, that there is likely to be war between Albany and Cornwall, and that Regan and Cornwall are to arrive at Gloucester's house that evening.
Taking advantage of the arrival of the duke and Regan, Edmund fakes an attack by Edgar, and Gloucester is completely taken in.Martin Luther King, Jr. was a social activist and Baptist minister who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mids until his assassination in King sought.
