The First 35 Lines of King Lear

Not what you think.  “Kellogg Bloggin'” has a post up about getting a Shakespeare class to teachh and asks comments, “it was really fun looking at the opening thirty-five or so lines of “King Lear” and see how much of the whole play of Lear is in those opening lines.” I thought I’d throw in a link in case anybody wants to get in on that discussion. For the curious, these are the lines before King Lear enters.  The play opens on a discussion between Kent and Gloucester (who do mention the dividing of the kingdom), and the introduction of Edmund.
