This preview shows page 1 out of 1 page.

The tragedy of Shakespeare’s King Lear is made far more tragic and painful by the presence and suffering of the king's youngest daughter, Cordelia. In King Lear, the action begins when Cordelia tells her father, "Nothing". She refuses to imitate her sisters’ professions of love and their attempts to outdo each other. Clearly, she hasn’t done anything wrong and Shakespeare cleverly makes this evident through her speech. Because of her honesty, Lear disinherits her and she leaves the kingdom to live

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
