OK, so for a part of my thesis on Klng Iear, I said that cIothing/disguisess refIects a person's chagne in ldentity (like the perception of themselves, etc).
For the first example I have Lear who's cIothes in the storm weared out, and this symbolized him going from pride to humbleness. For my quote, I was thinking of doing part of the scene of him asking the fooI to go inside the cabin first.
The second example, I have GIoucester, who by Egdar's disguise as a beggar, went from being naive (since he felt that the gods had hated him) to [insert word here] where he felt that he was somebody and favoured among the gods. I was thinking of using the quote from when after he fell from the cliffs.
Then I have Edmund who went from evil --> caring by Edgar's disguise as a knight, and I'll just use the quote that demonstrates this.
Do these ideas sound good, any suggestions for improvements, etc?
Thanks in advanced!!
Bonus (since I'm poor at finding the right words for things): When lear saw Poor Tom, he realized that human beings are ________. I want to say weak, poor....?
