Cloten is praised to his face and mocked behind his back. The allegedly "excellent" Posthumus makes a stupid wager...

So the King's only daughter married a commoner instead of doing as her father wished and taking own step brother. The Queen and courtiers support her but all lie to the King about it. Her husband and step-brother have a sword fight before her husband goes to Rome in exile. Also, her two brothers were mysteriously abducted when they were infants and have never been heard of since and...that's enough for one scene!

Poem for Rosh Hashanah

NEW YEAR.
poem by Ned Hayes

 

Rosh Hashanah comes
    this year
on a day of cool wind,

 

a breathtaking
portent of winter

 

taking the world, rude lover
   tossing
the sheets away.

 

in autumn
the sadness of all things

 

is greatest
   for now
the world was created.

 

the new fruit, shot through
with decay:

 

birthed in the same
   moment,
the racing seed
   and the worm.

The Folio edition of Lear represents the results of adaptation from the Quarto version, in response to performance, according to the editors, and is printed separately and in full. Overall it is shorter and the cuts had the effect of making Lear's descent into madness less convincing to me.

 

Cymbeline, next. Beginning to feel finishing line fever but there's still three whole plays to go!
