Cornwall {To Oswald} What was th’ offense you gave him?

Juan Carlos Atala

10th

Act 2

Literary Futures

Irony:

  1. “Cornwall {To Oswald} What was th’ offense you gave him?

Oswald: I never gave him any.” (2.2.120-125)

This quote shows irony because Kent just started to beat Oswald around for no reason at all. This irony because even thou Oswald innocently met Kent when delivering the letters he got beat up. This quote gives us an overall view of how innocent people get hurt when the nobility or higher classes get mad.

  1. “Cornwall: Fetch froth the stocks. -- You stubborn ancient knave, you reverent braggart, we’ll teach you.”(2.2.135-137)

This small quote gives us a small insight on how throughout the book peoples actions will some day come back to them, like the famous quote, “What goes around, comes around.” Kent’s bad treatment to Oswald led to his stay in the stocks, and Kings Lear’s bad treatment to Goneril’s slave (Oswald) lead to the bad treatment on his slave (Kent).

  1. “Lear:…O Regan, will you take her by the hand? Goneril: Why not by th’ hand, sir? How have I offended?”(2.4.224-226)

This is an example of irony because after all that the daughters said about how much they loved him, they still team up and go against their father’s belief on Cordelia’s exile. This shows use that the sisters are not exactly what they seem, and they also lie to their own father.

Foreshadowing:

“Fool: Winter’s not gone yet if the wild geese fly that way.” (2.4.52-53)

This quote shows how the Fool tells that winter has not gone yet, winter is normally cold, sad, and dark. The Fool gives us an insight that the time of darkness and trouble has not passed, there must be something big coming that will affect the current plot of the novel.

Symbolism:

“Lear: You nimble lightings, dart your blinding flames into her scornful eyes! Infect her beauty, You fen sucked fogs drawn by the powerful sun to fall and blister.” (2.4.187 - 190)

Here King Lear uses symbolism to describe his anger against Regan. He says he wants lightning to strike her and he also wants poisonous frogs on her face so she could look ugly.

Soliloquy:

  1. “Kent: Good King, that must approve the common saw, thou out of heaven’s benediction comets to the warm sun. (takes out a letter)…

All weary and o'erwatched, take vantage, heavy eyes, not to behold

this shameful lodging. fortune, good night. Smile once more. Turn thy wheel. (sleeps)” (2.2.175-190)

In this quote, Kent is in the stocks and he starts thinking to him self. Then he takes out a letter, and he knows it is from Cordelia.

  1. “Edgar: I heard myself proclaimed, and by the happy hollow of a tree escaped the hunt. No port is free, no place that guard and most unusual vigilance does not attend my taking. Whiles I may ’scape, I will preserve myself, and am bethought to take the basest and most poorest shape that ever penury in contempt of man brought near to beast... Sometime with lunatic bans, sometime with prayers, enforce their charity. “Poor Turlygod!” “Poor Tom!”— that’s something yet. Edgar I nothing am.”

In this quote Edgar starts talking to himself and realize that if he escapes it is more usual that he might be found. So he comes up with a plan to disguise himself as a peasant, a dirty sticky peasant.Дадаць дакумент у свой блог ці на сайт
