King Lear Act 2

When Edgar is disguised and pretending to be insane, what name does he use? Tom
Gloucester calling Edmund a “loyal and natural boy” is ironic because Edmund is Disloyal, known for being Gloucester’s illegitimate son, and behaving in an unnatural manner for a son.
In Act II, scene 1, Edmund encourages Edgar to flee before Gloucester arrives. What does Edmund then do to increase Gloucester’s anger and his view of Edgar as villain? stabs himself in the arm
When King Lear goes out into the storm, who loyally goes and stays with him? Fool and kent
What does Edgar do to disguise himself? smear mud on his face, tangle his hair
Kent is put into the stocks for his abuse of Oswald
In Act II all of the following are ways that Lear is made to feel humiliated Regan leaves her home when she knows Lear is on his way there, His messenger is put in the stocks, Lear is told he does not need all of his knights so his train must be decreased.
“…O fool, I shall go mad!” King Lear
“I gave you all–“ King Lear
“A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; a/base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited,/hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a/lily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson,/glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue” Kent
“Winter’s not gone yet, if the wild geese fly that way.” Fool
“…Shut up your doors:/He is attended with a desperate train.” Regan
“Fetch forth the stocks!/You stubborn knave, you reverend braggart,/We’ll teach you -“ Cornwall
“Fortune, good night; smile once more; turn thy wheel!” Kent
What piece of advice does Regan offer Lear about his current situation? How does Lear react to Reagan’s advice? How is this reaction to this advice ironic? Regan tells Lear he can stay with her if he gives up some or all of his knights. She tells him he is old and that her servants will protect them. She basically tells him that he is an old man who is full of himself, and doesn’t like to listen to others when they are trying to help him. King Lear then curses her and Goneril because he believes he has been betrayed by his daughters. This is ironic because he had just said that he loves Regan he that she was his favorite daughter but when she tried to give him advice he then thought she wasn’t being loyal and cursed her.
