Shakespeare's Myths

King Lear (1605-1606, 1605)

The History of King Lear, xxi.43-46 (Quarto text); The Tragedy of King Lear, (Folio text):


You do me wrong to take me out o’th’ grave.

Thou art a soul in bliss, but I am bound

Upon a wheel of fire, that mine own tears

Do scald like molten lead.
