Storyboard Text

  • We need to talk about how we are going to split the kingdom
  • "Which of you shall we say doth love us most, that we our largest bounty may extend where nature doth merit challenge. Goneril, our eldest born, speak first."
  • Father, I love you more than words can describe. You are more dear to me than anything I could own.
  • What should I say to him? Maybe I shouldn't say anything.
  • What do you have to say Regan?
  • "Sir, I am made of that self mettle as my sister, And prize me at her worth. In my true heart, I find she names my very deed of love; Only she comes too short."
  • King Lear, Albany, Cornwall, Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia enter King Lear's castle while discussing the future of the family and their money.
  • Now Cordelia, our youngest, what do you have to say for yourself?
  • What should I say? Nothing I can say will express my love for him!
  • Goneril professes her love to her father in order to keep her portion of the family wealth. As Cordelia contemplates what to say.
  • "Nothing?  Nothing will come of nothing."
  • I have nothing to say.
  • King Lear satisfied with this answer turns to Regan to hear her response. As she claims she loves him even more than Goneril does.
  • Fine. Cordelia you shall not recieve anything for you do not love me. You are a stranger to me. Leave my sight.
  • King Lear looks to his youngest daughter to hear her confess her love for him. While she again ponders what she should say to him.
  • Cordelia refuses to profess her love for her father, as he asks her repeatedly to speak of her love.
  • "Unhappy that I am, I cannot heave my heart into my mouth. I love your Majesty according to my bond, no more nor less."
  • Cordelia is banished and King Lear decides that it is just to divide his power between the daughters who professed their love for him.
  • Regan and Goneril it is only just that the daughters who love me shall receive my greatest bounty.
