First 100 words of the document:
King Lear: Act 5 Scene 2
Key: plot form language structure character
Lines 1-11: the French army is beaten and Lear and Cordeila have been
captured. Gloucester, once again in despair, is taken out of harm's way
Lines 3-4: dramatic irony as Edgar is hinting at wanting to reveal his
true identity which the audience already knows but Gloucester does not.
"father" Edgar is not calling Gloucester this directly as it was a polite
term of address for a old man during the time.
