This reminded me of the letter that Edmund wrote to make his father believe his Edgar was plotting against him. He said “I beseech you, sir, pardon me. It is a letter from my brother that I have not all o'er-read. And for so much as I have perused, I find it not fit for your o'erlooking” (1.2.2). By making it seem like he was hiding the letter it made his father curious and he believed it.
I believe this would have been good advice for Lear when he was mad at Cordelia. His madness caused his downfall and eventually his family’s death. By being mad he only hurt himself and the ones he loved.
This quote relates to the Fool and how he treated Lear. When Lear was losing his mind and acting cruel the Fool was by his side to bring him back to reality. He even put his life in danger in the storm to be with Lear.
This quote relates to Kent because he remained loyal to king Lear throughout the play and was always honest with him. Kent spoke out against Lear when he said “Be Kent unmannerly/ when Lear is mad” (22.214.171.124). He said this to stand up for Cordelia and he was banished because of it. Even though he was banished he stayed by Lear’s side in disguise so he could continue to serve him. He proved he was a true friend to Lear.
This quote can serve as advice for Edmund who is jealous of his brother. He is jealous of his brother Edgar because he is Gloucester legitimate son therefore he is entitled to all of his wealth, land and power.
Sibling Rivalry... This picture can relate to the relationship between Goneril and Regan towards the end of the play. They both have a strong desire for power which leads to their downfall. They both desire Edmund and they turn on one another in an attempt to gain power.
