  • Sir, I am made
    Of the selfsame metal that my sister is,
    And prize me at her worth. In my true heart
    I find she names my very deed of love;
    Only she comes too short, that I profess
    Myself an enemy to all other joys
    Which the most precious square of sense possesses,
    And find I am alone felicitate
    In your dear Highness' love.
  • Lear. Of all these bounds, even from this line to this,
    With shadowy forests and with champains rich'd,
    With plenteous rivers and wide-skirted meads,
    We make thee lady. To thine and Albany's issue
    Be this perpetual.- What says our second daughter,
    Our dearest Regan, wife to Cornwall? Speak.

    Regan. Sir, I am made
    Of the selfsame metal that my sister is,
    And prize me at her worth. In my true heart
    I find she names my very deed of love;
    Only she comes too short, that I profess
    Myself an enemy to all other joys
    Which the most precious square of sense possesses,
    And find I am alone felicitate
    In your dear Highness' love.

    At fortune...
  • Let your study
    Be to content your lord, who hath receiv'd you
    At fortune's alms. You have obedience scanted,
    And well are worth the want that you have wanted.
  • Goneril. Prescribe not us our duties.

    Regan. Let your study
    Be to content your lord, who hath receiv'd you
    At fortune's alms. You have obedience scanted,
    And well are worth the want that you have wanted.

  • That's most certain, and with you; next month with us.
  • That's most certain, and with you; next month with us.
  • Goneril. Sister, it is not little I have to say of what most nearly
    appertains to us both. I think our father will hence to-night.

    Regan. That's most certain, and with you; next month with us.

  • 'Tis the infirmity of his age; yet he hath ever but slenderly
    known himself....
  • 'Tis the infirmity of his age; yet he hath ever but slenderly
    known himself.
  • Goneril. You see how full of changes his age is. The observation we
    have made of it hath not been little. He always lov'd our
    sister most, and with what poor judgment he hath now cast her
    off appears too grossly.

    Regan. 'Tis the infirmity of his age; yet he hath ever but slenderly
    known himself.

    of Kent's banish...
  • Such unconstant starts are we like to have from him as this
    of Kent's banishment.
  • Goneril. The best and soundest of his time hath been but rash; then
    must we look to receive from his age, not alone the
    imperfections of long-ingraffed 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.

6 I / 1
  • We shall further think on't.
  • We shall further think on't.
  • Goneril. There is further compliment of leave-taking between France and
    him. Pray you let's hit together. If our father carry authority
    with such dispositions as he bears, this last surrender of his
    will but offend us.

    Regan. We shall further think on't.

  • If it be true, all vengeance comes too short
    Which can pursue th' offender....
  • If it be true, all vengeance comes too short
    Which can pursue th' offender. How dost, my lord?
  • Duke of Cornwall. How now, my noble friend? Since I came hither
    (Which I can call but now) I have heard strange news.

    Regan. If it be true, all vengeance comes too short
    Which can pursue th' offender. How dost, my lord?

  • What, did my father's godson seek your life?
    He whom my father nam'd? Your Edgar?
  • Earl of Gloucester. O madam, my old heart is crack'd, it's crack'd!

    Regan. What, did my father's godson seek your life?
    He whom my father nam'd? Your Edgar?

9 II / 1
  • Was he not companion with the riotous knights
    That tend upon my father?
  • Was he not companion with the riotous knights
    That tend upon my father?
  • Earl of Gloucester. O lady, lady, shame would have it hid!

    Regan. Was he not companion with the riotous knights
    That tend upon my father?

10 II / 1

  • No marvel then though he were ill affected.
    'Tis they have put him on the old man's death,
    To have th' expense and waste of his revenues.
    I have this present evening from my sister
    Been well inform'd of them, and with such cautions
    That, if they come to sojourn at my house,
    I'll not be there.
  • Edmund. Yes, madam, he was of that consort.

    Regan. No marvel then though he were ill affected.
    'Tis they have put him on the old man's death,
    To have th' expense and waste of his revenues.
    I have this present evening from my sister
    Been well inform'd of them, and with such cautions
    That, if they come to sojourn at my house,
    I'll not be there.

  • Thus out of season, threading dark-ey'd night.
    Occasions, noble Gloucester, of some poise,
    Wherein we must have use of your advice.
    Our father he hath writ, so hath our sister,
    Of differences, which I best thought it fit
    To answer from our home. The several messengers
    From hence attend dispatch. Our good old friend,
    Lay comforts to your bosom, and bestow
    Your needful counsel to our business,
    Which craves the instant use.
  • Duke of Cornwall. You know not why we came to visit you-

    Regan. Thus out of season, threading dark-ey'd night.
    Occasions, noble Gloucester, of some poise,
    Wherein we must have use of your advice.
    Our father he hath writ, so hath our sister,
    Of differences, which I best thought it fit
    To answer from our home. The several messengers
    From hence attend dispatch. Our good old friend,

  • The messengers from our sister and the King
  • Duke of Cornwall. Keep peace, upon your lives!
    He dies that strikes again. What is the matter?

    Regan. The messengers from our sister and the King

13 II / 2
  • Till noon? Till night, my lord, and all night too!
  • Till noon? Till night, my lord, and all night too!
  • Duke of Cornwall. Fetch forth the stocks! As I have life and honour,
    There shall he sit till noon.

    Regan. Till noon? Till night, my lord, and all night too!

14 II / 2
  • Sir, being his knave, I will.
  • Sir, being his knave, I will.
  • Earl of Kent. Why, madam, if I were your father's dog,
    You should not use me so.

    Regan. Sir, being his knave, I will.

  • My sister may receive it much more worse,
    To have her gentleman abus'd, assaulted,
    For following her affairs. Put in his legs.-
    [Kent is put in the stocks.]
    Come, my good lord, away.
  • Duke of Cornwall. I'll answer that.

    Regan. My sister may receive it much more worse,
    To have her gentleman abus'd, assaulted,
    For following her affairs. Put in his legs.-
    [Kent is put in the stocks.]
    Come, my good lord, away.

  • I am glad to see your Highness.
  • I am glad to see your Highness.
  • Duke of Cornwall. Hail to your Grace!

    Regan. I am glad to see your Highness.

  • I pray you, sir, take patience. I have hope
    You less know how to value her desert
    Than she to scant her duty.
  • Lear. Regan, I think you are; I know what reason
    I have to think so. If thou shouldst not be glad,
    I would divorce me from thy mother's tomb,
    Sepulchring an adultress. [To Kent] O, are you free?
    Some other time for that.- Beloved Regan,
    Thy sister's naught. O Regan, she hath tied
    Sharp-tooth'd unkindness, like a vulture, here!
    [Lays his hand on his heart.]
    I can scarce speak to thee. Thou'lt not believe
    With how deprav'd a quality- O Regan!

    Regan. I pray you, sir, take patience. I have hope
    You less know how to value her desert
    Than she to scant her duty.

18 II / 4

  • I cannot think my sister in the least
    Would fail her obligation. If, sir, perchance
    She have restrain'd the riots of your followers,
    'Tis on such ground, and to such wholesome end,
    As clears her from all blame.
  • Lear. Say, how is that?

    Regan. I cannot think my sister in the least
    Would fail her obligation. If, sir, perchance
    She have restrain'd the riots of your followers,
    'Tis on such ground, and to such wholesome end,
    As clears her from all blame.

  • O, sir, you are old!
    Nature in you stands on the very verge
    Of her confine. You should be rul'd, and led
    By some discretion that discerns your state
    Better than you yourself. Therefore I pray you
    That to our sister you do make return;
    Say you have wrong'd her, sir.
  • Lear. My curses on her!

    Regan. O, sir, you are old!
    Nature in you stands on the very verge
    Of her confine. You should be rul'd, and led
    By some discretion that discerns your state
    Better than you yourself. Therefore I pray you
    That to our sister you do make return;
    Say you have wrong'd her, sir.

20 II / 4
  • Good sir, no more! These are unsightly tricks.
    Return you to my sister.
  • Good sir, no more! These are unsightly tricks.
    Return you to my sister.
  • Lear. Ask her forgiveness?
    Do you but mark how this becomes the house:
    'Dear daughter, I confess that I am old. [Kneels.]
    Age is unnecessary. On my knees I beg
    That you'll vouchsafe me raiment, bed, and food.'

    Regan. Good sir, no more! These are unsightly tricks.
    Return you to my sister.

21 II / 4
  • O the blest gods! so will you wish on me
    When the rash mood is on.
  • O the blest gods! so will you wish on me
    When the rash mood is on.
  • Lear. You nimble lightnings, dart your blinding flames
    Into her scornful eyes! Infect her beauty,
    You fen-suck'd fogs, drawn by the pow'rful sun,
    To fall and blast her pride!

    Regan. O the blest gods! so will you wish on me
    When the rash mood is on.

22 II / 4
  • Good sir, to th' purpose.
  • Good sir, to th' purpose.
  • Lear. No, Regan, thou shalt never have my curse.
    Thy tender-hefted nature shall not give
    Thee o'er to harshness. Her eyes are fierce; but thine
    Do comfort, and not burn. 'Tis not in thee
    To grudge my pleasures, to cut off my train,
    To bandy hasty words, to scant my sizes,
    And, in conclusion, to oppose the bolt
    Against my coming in. Thou better know'st
    The offices of nature, bond of childhood,
    Effects of courtesy, dues of gratitude.
    Thy half o' th' kingdom hast thou not forgot,
    Wherein I thee endow'd.

    Regan. Good sir, to th' purpose.

23 II / 4
  • I know't- my sister's. This approves her letter,

  • I know't- my sister's. This approves her letter,
    That she would soon be here.
    [Enter [Oswald the] Steward.]
    Is your lady come?
  • Duke of Cornwall. What trumpet's that?

    Regan. I know't- my sister's. This approves her letter,
    That she would soon be here.
    [Enter [Oswald the] Steward.]
    Is your lady come?

24 II / 4

  • I pray you, father, being weak, seem so.
    If, till the expiration of your month,
    You will return and sojourn with my sister,
    Dismissing half your train, come then to me.
    I am now from home, and out of that provision
    Which shall be needful for your entertainment.
  • Lear. You? Did you?

    Regan. I pray you, father, being weak, seem so.
    If, till the expiration of your month,
    You will return and sojourn with my sister,
    Dismissing half your train, come then to me.
    I am now from home, and out of that provision
    Which shall be needful for your entertainment.

  • Not altogether so.
    I look'd not for you yet, nor am provided
    For your fit welcome. Give ear, sir, to my sister;
    For those that mingle reason with your passion
    Must be content to think you old, and so-
    But she knows what she does.
  • Lear. I prithee, daughter, do not make me mad.
    I will not trouble thee, my child; farewell.
    We'll no more meet, no more see one another.
    But yet thou art my flesh, my blood, my daughter;
    Or rather a disease that's in my flesh,
    Which I must needs call mine. Thou art a boil,
    A plague sore, an embossed carbuncle
    In my corrupted blood. But I'll not chide thee.
    Let shame come when it will, I do not call it.
    I do not bid the Thunder-bearer shoot
    Nor tell tales of thee to high-judging Jove.
    Mend when thou canst; be better at thy leisure;
    I can be patient, I can stay with Regan,
    I and my hundred knights.

    Regan. Not altogether so.
    I look'd not for you yet, nor am provided
    For your fit welcome. Give ear, sir, to my sister;
    For those that mingle reason with your passion
    Must be content to think you old, and so-
    But she knows what she does.

  • I dare avouch it, sir. What, fifty followers?
    Is it not well? What should you need of more?
    Yea, or so many, sith that both charge and danger
    Speak 'gainst so great a number? How in one house
    Should many people, under two commands,
    Hold amity? 'Tis hard; almost impossible.
  • Lear. Is this well spoken?

    Regan. I dare avouch it, sir. What, fifty followers?
    Is it not well? What should you need of more?
    Yea, or so many, sith that both charge and danger
    Speak 'gainst so great a number? How in one house
    Should many people, under two commands,
    Hold amity? 'Tis hard; almost impossible.

27 II / 4
  • Why not, my lord? If then they chanc'd to slack ye,
    We could control them. I...
  • Why not, my lord? If then they chanc'd to slack ye,
    We could control them. If you will come to me
    (For now I spy a danger), I entreat you
    To bring but five-and-twenty. To no more
    Will I give place or notice.
  • Goneril. Why might not you, my lord, receive attendance
    From those that she calls servants, or from mine?

    Regan. Why not, my lord? If then they chanc'd to slack ye,
    We could control them. If you will come to me
    (For now I spy a danger), I entreat you
    To bring but five-and-twenty. To no more
    Will I give place or notice.

28 II / 4
  • And in good time you gave it!
  • And in good time you gave it!
  • Lear. I gave you all-

    Regan. And in good time you gave it!

29 II / 4
  • And speak't again my lord. No more with me.
  • And speak't again my lord. No more with me.
  • Lear. Made you my guardians, my depositaries;
    But kept a reservation to be followed
    With such a number. What, must I come to you
    With five-and-twenty, Regan? Said you so?

    Regan. And speak't again my lord. No more with me.

30 II / 4
  • What need one?
  • What need one?
  • Goneril. Hear, me, my lord.
    What need you five-and-twenty, ten, or five,
    To follow in a house where twice so many
    Have a command to tend you?

    Regan. What need one?

31 II / 4
  • This house is little; the old man and 's people
    Cannot be well bestow'd.
  • This house is little; the old man and 's people
    Cannot be well bestow'd.
  • Duke of Cornwall. Let us withdraw; 'twill be a storm.

    Regan. This house is little; the old man and 's people
    Cannot be well bestow'd.

32 II / 4
  • For his particular, I'll receive him gladly,
    But not one follower.
  • For his particular, I'll receive him gladly,
    But not one follower.
  • Goneril. 'Tis his own blame; hath put himself from rest
    And must needs taste his folly.

    Regan. For his particular, I'll receive him gladly,
    But not one follower.

33 II / 4

  • O, sir, to wilful men
    The injuries that they themselves procure
    Must be their schoolmasters. Shut up your doors.
    He is attended with a desperate train,
    And what they may incense him to, being apt
    To have his ear abus'd, wisdom bids fear.
  • Earl of Gloucester. Alack, the night comes on, and the bleak winds
    Do sorely ruffle. For many miles about
    There's scarce a bush.

    Regan. O, sir, to wilful men
    The injuries that they themselves procure
    Must be their schoolmasters. Shut up your doors.
    He is attended with a desperate train,
    And what they may incense him to, being apt
    To have his ear abus'd, wisdom bids fear.

34 III / 7
  • Hang him instantly.
  • Hang him instantly.
  • Duke of Cornwall. [to Goneril] Post speedily to my lord your husband, show him
    this letter. The army of France is landed.- Seek out the traitor
    Gloucester.

    Regan. Hang him instantly.

35 III / 7
  • Ingrateful fox! 'tis he.
  • Ingrateful fox! 'tis he.
  • Duke of Cornwall. Edmund, farewell. [Exeunt Goneril, Edmund, and Oswald.]
    Go seek the traitor Gloucester,
    Pinion him like a thief, bring him before us. [Exeunt other Servants.]
    Though well we may not pass upon his life
    Without the form of justice, yet our power
    Shall do a court'sy to our wrath, which men
    May blame, but not control. [Enter Gloucester, brought in by two or three.]
    Who's there? the traitor?

    Regan. Ingrateful fox! 'tis he.

36 III / 7
  • Hard, hard. O filthy traitor!
  • Hard, hard. O filthy traitor!
  • Duke of Cornwall. Bind him, I say.

    Regan. Hard, hard. O filthy traitor!

37 III / 7
  • So white, and such a traitor!
  • So white, and such a traitor!
  • Earl of Gloucester. By the kind gods, 'tis most ignobly done
    To pluck me by the beard.

    Regan. So white, and such a traitor!

38 III / 7
  • Be simple-answer'd, for we know the truth.
  • Be simple-answer'd, for we know the truth.
  • Duke of Cornwall. Come, sir, what letters had you late from France?

    Regan. Be simple-answer'd, for we know the truth.

39 III / 7
  • To whose hands have you sent the lunatic King?
    Speak.
  • To whose hands have you sent the lunatic King?
    Speak.
  • Duke of Cornwall. And what confederacy have you with the traitors
    Late footed in the kingdom?

    Regan. To whose hands have you sent the lunatic King?
    Speak.

40 III / 7
  • And false.
  • And false.
  • Duke of Cornwall. Cunning.

    Regan. And false.

41 III / 7
  • Wherefore to Dover? Wast thou not charg'd at peril-
  • Wherefore to Dover? Wast thou not charg'd at peril-
  • Earl of Gloucester. To Dover.

    Regan. Wherefore to Dover? Wast thou not charg'd at peril-

42 III / 7
  • Wherefore to Dover, sir?
  • Wherefore to Dover, sir?
  • Earl of Gloucester. I am tied to th' stake, and I must stand the course.

    Regan. Wherefore to Dover, sir?

43 III / 7
  • One side will mock another. Th' other too!
  • One side will mock another. Th' other too!
  • Earl of Gloucester. He that will think to live till he be old,
    Give me some help!- O cruel! O ye gods!

    Regan. One side will mock another. Th' other too!

44 III / 7
  • How now, you dog?
  • How now, you dog?
  • Servant 1. Hold your hand, my lord!
    I have serv'd you ever since I was a child;
    But better service have I never done you
    Than now to bid you hold.

    Regan. How now, you dog?

45 III / 7
  • What do you mean?
  • What do you mean?
  • Servant 1. If you did wear a beard upon your chin,
    I'ld shake it on this quarrel.

    Regan. What do you mean?

46 III / 7
  • Give me thy sword. A peasant stand up thus?
    She takes a s...
  • Give me thy sword. A peasant stand up thus?
    She takes a sword and runs at him behind.
  • Servant 1. Nay, then, come on, and take the chance of anger.

    Regan. Give me thy sword. A peasant stand up thus?
    She takes a sword and runs at him behind.

47 III / 7
  • Out, treacherous villain!
    Thou call'st on him that hates thee. It was he
  • Out, treacherous villain!
    Thou call'st on him that hates thee. It was he
    That made the overture of thy treasons to us;
    Who is too good to pity thee.
  • Earl of Gloucester. All dark and comfortless! Where's my son Edmund?
    Edmund, enkindle all the sparks of nature
    To quit this horrid act.

    Regan. Out, treacherous villain!
    Thou call'st on him that hates thee. It was he
    That made the overture of thy treasons to us;
    Who is too good to pity thee.

48 III / 7

  • Go thrust him out at gates, and let him smell
    His way to Dover. [Exit one with Gloucester.]
    How is't, my lord? How look you?
  • Earl of Gloucester. O my follies! Then Edgar was abus'd.
    Kind gods, forgive me that, and prosper him!

    Regan. Go thrust him out at gates, and let him smell
    His way to Dover. [Exit one with Gloucester.]
    How is't, my lord? How look you?

49 IV / 5
  • But are my brother's pow'rs set forth?
  • But are my brother's pow'rs set forth?
  • Cordelia. 'Tis known before. Our preparation stands
    In expectation of them. O dear father,
    It is thy business that I go about.
    Therefore great France
    My mourning and important tears hath pitied.
    No blown ambition doth our arms incite,
    But love, dear love, and our ag'd father's right.
    Soon may I hear and see him!

    Regan. But are my brother's pow'rs set forth?

50 IV / 5
  • Himself in person there?
  • Himself in person there?
  • Oswald. Ay, madam.

    Regan. Himself in person there?

51 IV / 5
  • Lord Edmund spake not with your lord at home?
  • Lord Edmund spake not with your lord at home?
  • Oswald. Madam, with much ado.
    Your sister is the better soldier.

    Regan. Lord Edmund spake not with your lord at home?

52 IV / 5
  • What might import my sister's letter to him?
  • What might import my sister's letter to him?
  • Oswald. No, madam.

    Regan. What might import my sister's letter to him?

53 IV / 5
  • Faith, he is posted hence on serious matter.

  • Faith, he is posted hence on serious matter.
    It was great ignorance, Gloucester's eyes being out,
    To let him live. Where he arrives he moves
    All hearts against us. Edmund, I think, is gone,
    In pity of his misery, to dispatch
    His nighted life; moreover, to descry
    The strength o' th' enemy.
  • Oswald. I know not, lady.

    Regan. Faith, he is posted hence on serious matter.
    It was great ignorance, Gloucester's eyes being out,
    To let him live. Where he arrives he moves
    All hearts against us. Edmund, I think, is gone,
    In pity of his misery, to dispatch
    His nighted life; moreover, to descry
    The strength o' th' enemy.

    My lord is dead; Edmund and I have talk'd,
    And more convenient is he for my hand
    Than for your lady's. You may gather more.
    If you do find him, pray you give him this;
    And when your mistress hears thus much from you,
    I pray desire her call her wisdom to her.
    So farewell.
    If you do chance to hear of that blind traitor,
    Preferment falls on him that cuts him off.
