Act 2 scene 3
Edgar describes himself and how he heard that he is wanted and says he must hide
from his pursuers. He can't escape so disguises himself as a mad beggar.
Disguise- Edgar lets the audience know of his plan to disguise himself
Madness- Edgar may pretend to be mad but is actually the sanest there.
Edgar- most down to earth character and even though he pretends to be mad
he is the sanest of all of them.
Language features
Edgar speaks in a soliloquy which is when a character speaks their thoughts
aloud to the audience without other characters knowing which gives an
insight into his character.
Dramatic irony as the audience now know that mad Tom is indeed Edgar and
no other characters know this.
