And hardly shall I carry out my side, Her husband being alive. Now, then, we’ll use His countenance for the battle, which being done, Let her who would be rid of him devise His speedy taking off...

Edmund knows that as long as both of the sisters live he won’t be able to enjoy himself with any of them because he knows their reactions if he chose one over the other. Edmund also understands he can’t choose Goneril as long as Albany is alive so he plans on getting one of the sisters to eliminate him after the battle is over. Edmund also explains how after he has won and captured King Lear and Cordelia he won’t show them mercy. “Away, old man. Give me thy hand. Away! King Lear hath lost, he and his daughter ta'en. Give me thy hand. Come on.” Pg 233 (R) In the following passage Edgar is advising Gloucester that they should leave because King Lear’s forces were defeated and King Lear and Cordelia were captured. From Edgar’s actions and his concern for his father we can conclude that although he was banished and caused to flee he still worried about his father even though he had been deceived by Edgar.

Men must endure Their going hence even as their coming hither. Ripeness is all. Come on.” Pg 235 (C) Since Gloucester is depressed and wants to die, Edgar tries to encourage him by saying that he won’t leave him there to die and that he will die but when the time comes.

    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.
