much I love you.CORDELIA What shall Cordelia speak Love and be silent AsideLEAR Of all these bounds, even from this line to this, Points With shadowy forests and with champaigns riched, to the mapWith

like my sisters.LEAR But goes thy heart with this CORDELIA Ay, my good lord.LEAR So young and so untender CORDELIA So young, my lord, and true.LEAR Let it be so thy truth then be thy dower,For by the sacred radiance of the sun,The mysteries of Hecate and the night,By all the operation of the orbsFrom whom we do exist and cease to be,Here I disclaim all my paternal care,Propinquity and property of blood,And as a stranger to my heart and meHold thee from this for ever The barbarous Scythian,Or he that makes his generation messesTo gorge his appetite, shall to my bosomBe as well neighboured, pitied and relievedAs thou my sometime daughter.KENT Good my liege LEAR Peace, Kent Come not between the dragon and his wrath.I loved her most, and thought to set my restOn her kind nursery Hence, and

rest,Belovd sons, be yours, which to confirm,This coronet part between you Gives them coronet to break in halfKENT Royal Lear,Whom I have ever honoured as my king,Loved as my father, as my master followed,As my great patron thought on in my prayers LEAR The bow is bent and drawn, make from the shaft.KENT Let it fall rather, though the fork invadeThe region of my heart be Kent unmannerlyWhen Lear is mad What wouldst thou do, old man Think st thou that duty shall have dread to speakWhen power to flattery bows To plainness honour sboundWhen majesty falls to folly Reserve thy state,And in thy best consideration checkThis hideous rashness Answer my life myjudgement Thy youngest daughter does not love thee least,Nor are those empty hearted whose low soundsReverb no hollowness.LEAR Kent, on thy life, no .KENT My life I never held but as pawnTo wage against thine enemies, ne er fear to lose it,Thy safety being motive.LEAR Out of my sight KENT See better, Lear, and let me still remainThe true blank of thine eye.LEAR Now, by Apollo KENT Now, by Apollo, king,Thou swear st thy gods in vain.LEAR O, vassal Miscreant Puts his hand on his sword or attacks KentALBANY and CORDELIA Dear sir, forbear.KENT Kill thy physician, and thy fee bestowUpon the foul disease Revoke thy gift,Or whilst I can vent clamour from my throat,I ll tell thee thou dost evil.LEAR Hear me, recreant, on thine allegiance hear me That thou hast sought to make us break our vows,Which we durst never yet, and with strained prideTo come betwixt our sentences and our power,Which nor our nature nor our place can bear,Our potency made good, take thy reward Five days we do allot thee for provisionTo shield thee from disasters of the world,And on the sixth to turn thy hated backUpon our kingdom if on the next day followingThy banished trunk be found in our dominions,The moment is thy death Away By Jupiter,This shall not be revoked.KENT Fare thee well, king sith thus thou wilt appear,Freedom lives hence and banishment is here The gods to their dear shelter take thee, maid, To CordeliaThat justly think st, and hast most rightly said And your large speeches may your deeds approve, To GonerilThat

AttendantsCORDELIA Here s France and Burgundy, my noble lord.LEAR My lord of Burgundy,We first address toward you, who with this kingHath rivalled for our daughter what in the leastWill you require in present dower with her,Or cease your quest of love BURGUNDY Most royal majesty,I crave no than hath your highness offered,Nor will you tender less.LEAR Right noble Burgundy,When she was dear to us, we did hold her so,But now her price is fallen Sir, there she stands If aught within that little seeming substance,Or all of it, with our displeasure pieced,And nothing , may fitly like your grace,She s there, and she is yours.BURGUNDY I know no answer.LEAR Will you, with those infirmities she owes,Unfriended, new adopted to our hate,Dowered with our curse and strangered with ouroath,Take her or leave her BURGUNDY Pardon me, royal sir Election makes not up in such conditions.LEAR Then leave her, sir, for by the power that made me,I tell you all her wealth For you, great king, To FranceI would not from your love make such a strayTo match you where I hate, therefore beseech youT avert your liking a worthier wayThan on a wretch whom nature is ashamedAlmost t acknowledge hers.FRANCE This is most strange,That she whom even but now was your object,The argument of your praise, balm of your age,The best, the dearest, should in this trice of timeCommit a thing so monstrous to dismantleSo many folds of favour Sure her offenceMust be of such unnatural degreeThat monsters it, or your fore vouched affectionFall into taint, which to believe of herMust be a faith that reason without miracleShould never plant in me.CORDELIA I yet beseech your majesty If for I want that glib and oily artTo speak and purpose not, since what I will intendI ll do t before I speak that you make knownIt is no vicious blot, murder, or foulness,No unchaste action or dishonoured stepThat hath deprived me of your grace and favour,But even for want of that for which I am richer A still soliciting eye and such a tongueThat I am glad I have not, though not to have itHath lost me in your liking.LEAR Better thou hadstNot been born than not t have pleased me better.FRANCE Is it but this A tardiness in nature,Which often leaves the history unspokeThat it intends to do My lord of Burgundy,What say you to the lady Love s not loveWhen it is mingled with regards that standsAloof from th entire point Will you have her She is herself a dowry.BURGUNDY Royal king, To LearGive but that portion which yourself proposed,And here I take Cordelia by the hand,Duchess of Burgundy.LEAR Nothing I have sworn I am firm.BURGUNDY I am sorry, then, you have so lost a father To CordeliaThat you must lose a husband.CORDELIA Peace be with Burgundy.Since that respect and fortunes are his love,I shall not be his wife.FRANCE Fairest Cordelia, that art most rich being poor,Most choice forsaken, and most loved despised,Thee and thy virtues here I seize upon Be it lawful, I take up what s cast away Takes her handGods, gods Tis strange that from their cold st neglectMy love should kindle to inflamed respect Thy dowerless daughter, king, thrown to my chance,Is queen of us, of ours and our fair France Not all the dukes of wat rish BurgundyCan buy this unprized precious maid of me Bid them farewell, Cordelia, though unkind.Thou losest here, a better where to find.LEAR Thou hast her, France let her be thine, for weHave no such daughter, nor shall ever seeThat face of hers again Therefore be goneWithout our grace, our love, our benison.Come, noble Burgundy.Flourish Exeunt France and the sisters remain FRANCE Bid farewell to your sisters.CORDELIA The jewels of our father, with washd eyesCordelia leaves you I know you what you are,And like a sister am most loath to callYour faults as they are named Love well our father To your professd bosoms I commit him,But yet, alas, stood I within his grace,I would prefer him to a better place.So farewell to you both.REGAN Prescribe not us our duty.GONERIL Let your studyBe to content your lord who hath received youAt fortune s alms You have obedience scanted,And well are worth the want that you have wanted.CORDELIA Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides Who covers faults, at last with shame derides.Well may you prosper.FRANCE Come, my fair Cordelia Exit France and CordeliaGONERIL Sister, it is not little I have to say of what most nearly appertains to us both I think our father will hence tonight.REGAN That s most certain, and with you next month with us.GONERIL You see how full of changes his age is the observation we have made of it hath not been little He always loved our sister most, and with what poor judgement he hath now cast her off appears too grossly.REGAN Tis the infirmity of his age yet he hath ever but slenderly known himself.GONERIL The best and soundest of his time hath been but rash Then must we look from his age to receive not alone the imperfections of long engrafted condition, but therewithal the unruly waywardness that infirm and choleric years bring with them.REGAN Such unconstant starts are we like to have from him as this of Kent s banishment.GONERIL There is further compliment of leave taking between France and him Pray you let us sit together if our father carry authority with such disposition as he bears, this last surrender of his will but offend us.REGAN We shall further think of it.GONERIL We must do something, and i th heat ExeuntAct 1 Scene 2 running scene 2Enter Bastard Edmund With a letterGorgeous new Shakespeare paperbacks.Marlon James, author of A Brief History
