  • He says, my lord, your daughter is not well.
  • Lear. What says the fellow there? Call the clotpoll back.
    [Exit a Knight.] Where's my fool, ho? I think the world's
    asleep.
    [Enter Knight]
    How now? Where's that mongrel?

2 I / 4
  • Sir, he answered me in the roundest manner, he would not.
  • Sir, he answered me in the roundest manner, he would not.
  • Lear. Why came not the slave back to me when I call'd him?

    Knight. Sir, he answered me in the roundest manner, he would not.

3 I / 4
  • My lord, I know not what the matter is; but to my judgment
    your Highness is...
  • My lord, I know not what the matter is; but to my judgment
    your Highness is not entertain'd with that ceremonious affection
    as you were wont. There's a great abatement of kindness appears
    as well in the general dependants as in the Duke himself also
    and your daughter.
  • Lear. He would not?

    Knight. My lord, I know not what the matter is; but to my judgment
    your Highness is not entertain'd with that ceremonious affection
    as you were wont. There's a great abatement of kindness appears
    as well in the general dependants as in the Duke himself also
    and your daughter.

  • I beseech you pardon me, my lord, if I be mistaken; for
    my duty cannot be si...
  • I beseech you pardon me, my lord, if I be mistaken; for
    my duty cannot be silent when I think your Highness wrong'd.
  • Lear. Ha! say'st thou so?

    Knight. I beseech you pardon me, my lord, if I be mistaken; for
    my duty cannot be silent when I think your Highness wrong'd.

5 I / 4

  • Since my young lady's going into France, sir, the fool
    hath much pined away.
  • Lear. Thou but rememb'rest me of mine own conception. I have
    perceived a most faint neglect of late, which I have rather
    blamed as mine own jealous curiosity than as a very pretence
    and purpose of unkindness. I will look further into't. But
    where's my fool? I have not seen him this two days.

    Knight. Since my young lady's going into France, sir, the fool
    hath much pined away.
