I found this horrible letter from Edgar, father. Sounds like he wants to kill you
"O villain, villain! His very opinion in the letter"(I.ii.75).
I can't deal with Lear anymore! Oswald when Lear comes treat him with as much disrespect as posible so he will leave
Anything for you, Goneril!
How dare you disrespect the King!
Where is Goneril?
Meanwhile, Edmund, Gloucester's illegitimate son reveals that he is determined to possess his father's power. He forges a letter which he uses to convince his father that Edgar is plotting to kill him. This letter enrages Gloucester who rashly becomes enraged at Edgar's betrayal. However, Edmund tells his father he will handle the matter.
How foolish it was for you to divide your Kingdom. How funny a king without any power!
What are you trying to say fool?
Back at the Duke of Albany's palace, Goneril has grown tired of her hosting her father and his one hundred knights. She instructs her servant, Oswald to provoke her father giving him a reason to leave.
I'd rather be a fool than be King Lear!
That's enough! If you want to stay here, you must reduce the number of knights
"How sharper than a serpant's tooth it is/ To have a thankless child. Away, away!" (I.iv.285-286).
Loyal Kent, who never fled the kingdom disguises himself in order to serve the king and becomes on of Lear's servants. Lear is informed that the knights are receiving poor treatment but when Lear asks Oswald where his daughter is, Oswald replies by walking away, therefore disrespecting the king. Kent stands up for Lear and threatens to beat Oswald.
Don't you understand? She won't treat you any better
I'm moving to Regan's palace!
The Fool enters and proceeds to mock Lear for his foolish decision to divide his kingdom and the stupidity of banishing his honest daughter, Cordelia.
Goneril enters and informs her father that is he wants to remain in her household he must reduce the number of his useless knight that only cause trouble. Lear is enraged that his daughter could be so ungrateful.
Lear writes a letter to Regan, where he states that he plans to remain in her household and instructs Kent to deliver it to Regan. He tells Kent to not tell Regan anymore than what is in the letter. The Fool further warns Lear that he has lost his daughter's respect and that Regan will not treat him any better than Goneril.
