King Lear," Act IV., Sc. 6,
The Country, near Dover.
Gloucester, his eyes put out by the Duke of Cornwall, has been thrust out of the gate of his castle and told to smell his way to Dover. Edgar, his banished son, meets him on the heath and without disclosing his relationship, undertakes to guide him to Dover. Arrived at Dover, Gloucester tells Edgar to lead
,him to the edge of the cliff, meaning to throw himself over. Edgar pretends to do so. Gloucester is led to some uneven ground, falls forward a few feet, and is persuaded by Edgar that he has fallen to the foot of the cliff, and yet escaped death by a miracle.
LEONARD GOWINGS.
As a result of the King's quarrels with his Nobles the French army under Louis, tlie Dauphin, is on English soil. King John is dying, poisoned by a monk. The Dauphin hears that his supplies have been wrecked on the Goodwins and the rebel English nobles have returned to their allegiance. The King's dying moments are cheered by the news of the Dauphin's offer of peace, and in the concluding lines of the play, Philip Falcon-bridge points the moral :
" Nought shall make us rue, If England to itself do rest but true."
LEONARD GOWINGS.
