King Lear: Act 2 scene 3
Key: plot form language structure character
Lines 1-20: Edgar describes himself and of how he heard about how he is
wanted and how he has to hide from his pursuers. He decides he can't escape
so he disguises himself as a filthy, mostly naked, mad beggar.
This scene is made of a soliloquy (when a character speaks their thoughts
aloud without any other characters listening) which gives an insight into
Edgar's character. This is written in blank verse.
Edgar is the most down to earth of all the characters even though he is
pretending to be mad, he is the sanest of all of them.
