Storyboard Text

  • Kent, the loyal advisor Lear exiled back in Scene 1, enters Goneril's castle disguised as a down-and-out peasant named Caius, so no one recognizes him. Kent lives to take care of Lear, and is determined to continue even if Lear has treated him poorly. He gains the kings trust after helping him rough up Oswald after he had disrespected Lear, by calling him the father of his lady. 
  • To Regan  From Goneril
  • The fool, who is the Kings personal comedian begins to joke and mock Lear for banishing Cordelia, who he himself favoured as well. He comments about Lear giving up his Kingdom to his daughters who now act as if they are his mother and try and control everything he does. The fool explains how King Lear is now the real fool and how he himself is actually wise. 
  • Goneril enters and begins to accuse Lear of things and demands him to cut his 100 men of knights in half. Lear is shocked by her behaviour and sees himself as foolish, trusting her over Cordelia. In anger once again, Lear calls upon the gods to make Goneril barren as punishment for the way she treated him. If not, he yells, he hopes she will have a mean and nasty daughter who will treat her like garbage and cause nothing but misery for her. 
  • Goneril writes her sister Regan a letter to warn her about their fathers behaviour, who is about to go live with her. She indicates Regan to act in a similar way in order for Goneril not to look bad.
