Is It Rolling, Bob? Talking Dylan: James Shapiro

"And so going back to think twice you were talking about about more about the writing. Yeah and it's something that I didn't know enough about until I was invited onto your program. But what are the things that interest me about? Shakespeare is the fact that you know. He wrote thirty six so plays that we know of and almost none of them may be. The tempest may be midsummer. Night's dream are his original story but for the most part Shakespeare was not interested in creating a new story. He looked around at the stories others had told whether they were Italian. Novellas or English plays or history's any thought I understand what's slightly off for not really fulfilled in this version older version and he did what architects call a gut renovation. He kept the frame and he just cleared out the inside and made it is. Oh so when Dylan writes. Don't think twice. He knows Paul Clayton Song. Who's going to buy you ribbons? When I'm gone? He worked with Klay knew who sadly killed himself in in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven. Eight toward together collaborated a little bit and I'm sure that there is kind of cross pollination if you will between Clayton Song. And and don't think twice and dillon with a little techy from what. I've learned about that you know he said I steal the word a or the word so whether we're done you know Ed is a good question. Although he was a little defensive even steal those words but he is reaching into a tradition a tradition that goes further back than Clayton to. What I learned was an African American Song that circulated in Virginia. Who's GonNa Bring you chickens? So what we're talking about. Our traditions and Shakespeare comes out of traditions. Really in very similar ways. To how Dylan does and plagiarism is. A useless category the only useful category. Can you take something old and make it speak to the moment? In a way that makes people feel connected to that song ways. Nobody has ever felt connected to it in dealing did that for me. I think I'm right in saying and correct me. If I'm not the Sean Wilentz I think wrote a book called Bob Dylan and America. And he I believe explored this notion and said you know what it's Alchemy. What he's doing is he's taking base matters and is creating something new out of it that shines and I thought that was really damage. It is in trouble. Lens is A friend and a very smart guy and I think he wrote brilliantly about about Dylan. Christopher ricks did as well They're just a people recognize. That is work rises to the level of seriousness. And it is how chemical it is a transformation but for me. It's really the lack of thoughtfulness beyond the magic of the transformation and the thoughtfulness I suppose has to do with. I see what's not there. That's a hard thing to to grasp and Shakespeare was really good at it. Didn't create the story of Hamlet. He didn't create the story King. Lear those were all plays bouncing around in the stage. You probably acted in a spear holder when he was young. He's onstage they could. God I can write this great Soliloquy at this point or I could tweak it in this way. And maybe it's not occurring Bob Dylan in a cerebral way. But it's occurring to him in a way that lets them know. Yeah I. I know the folk he sang exists but that song is dead on arrival. Something has to be done to reanimated and I suppose it's as much Raising the data's alchemy. And where do you think Dylan? Shakespeare intersect particularly? I think oddly even though four hundred years or so separates their birth. They both products of a similar education system. You know it's it's remarkable if you listened to to Dylan's account of education in his Nobel lecture in two thousand Seventeen. He talks a lot of doubt grammar. School you know. He learned things in Grammar School. The devices techniques secret mysteries whatever. He's talking about. He talks about gullivers travel. Dickins Don Quixote all these stories and of course we know he had a great teacher in school. Who taught him the poetry John Donovan? The poetry plays of Shakespeare so shakespeare learn what he learned in Grammar School. I mean this is a Western tradition that span than in now and both of them sat there probably frustrated probably demise racing as they were exposed to this stuff and taking it all in and a decade later or or ten years later figuring out how to turn this into into gold if you will and I mean that both literally and figuratively because you have to make money as an artist or like pulled claim you can end up desperate and suicidal and both of them figured out how to do that. And if you think you know as a thought experiment Dylan or Shakespeare Been Born twenty years earlier or twenty years later whatever genius they had could not have been fully rely so yes. They were both remarkable artists but they had great luck in being born at what they recognize. Both of them were pivotal moments in in their culture in the arts in the possibilities that were now available to young

"Atty drowned himself in wine. That song came out about a year ago. When you were curly obsessing over the crazy times we were living in then. What new meaning does a song like that have today? I was thinking about that. Actually I was like I. I like that song even more now but I I was really writing at. Moore's a political thing and now it's it's just a more universal thing I mean this is like the black plague sort of thing and people online. I've been reading like there's a theory that Shakespeare wrote Macbeth and King Lear under for like eighteen months or something and so there's certainly a lot of time for at least creative people to buckle down and try to make something new but yeah we could all use some peace of mind and you know I actually have been taking some time out of the day to find peace like meditate or try to meditate. I'm not very good at it but especially the first especially those first few days of no school as just like I need something and it's not as not drugs or drink and I just needed some quiet time Does even five minutes was helpful. The amount of news about Corona viruses. Absolutely crazy so it's it's nice to put the phone down sometimes so the viruses obviously changed how you can work with other people and how. You're kind of self isolated. Does it change your priorities as a storyteller and what you want to talk about and sing about yeah. I mean I don't know but as a storyteller yet I don't know if I've quite been like oh now I know what to write about but as a human being and I think a lot of people probably feel a bit of this is a human being you kind of understand life in a different way that we haven't had to deal with in this country like we've seen people in Syria waiting in long queues for rice from the back of a truck. And we've never really had to do that here at least in my lifetime so going to the grocery store the past few weeks has been eye opening for sure and realizing how good we had it and how good we still have. We Have Electricity Water Internet net flicks all that stuff. I mean. We're pretty comfortable here. Imagine if all that was wiped away yeah I mean. There's a bigger emphasis in my life on my family on joy. I guess whatever however you get joy but just making the most of life and I think this is you know teaching a lot of people lessons as to what is really important in their life and what they would spend their time doing. And that's the silver lining. I guess you could say be. Beeman is a singer and songwriter. You can find his music at Beeman DOT com. That's B. H. I. M. A. N. DOT COM B. S. We go out.

Harold Bloom: The Shadow of a Great Rock: A Literary Appreciation of the King James Bible

"You know recently Harold Bloom died he was the figure of extrordinary controversy Oko Zinder other circumstances is he would have been just another professor but he was the professor who was defending the Western canon as he quoted which meant that he was talking about Shakespeare and Milton and of course his great of Shelley he studied how these writers in the Canon influenced each other he wrote a book called the Gang Society of influence he really became the writer of our time talking out that tradition now let's acknowledge that tradition is rarely taught in the university the way it was in the generation of Herald I had the pleasure and I would say the honor of talking to her world boom at his own apartment in New York I will say that I disagreed with him about many things things when we aired these interviews people wrote in Yes harold bloom was an elitist yes he was but we should have one of everything and there are leaders and there are populous and there are ever very kind of response that you can have two good richer this is harold boom from our conversation on bookworm unlike his book the Anatomy of influence literature is a way of life which seems a settled and masterful book the shadow of a great rock is audacious and I would like to say even dangerous which tells us that a great mind doesn't settle into somnolence or eternity it's always at work work and always making trouble this is the nature of the mind Harold Bloom my wife would appreciate how do you how do you feel you've spoken of the many controversies you've causes mentioned some of them in this book it's never going to see aw both well hated and well loved and particularly with I have to say about the New Testament here has already started Israel fury I've got nasty email nasty letters and even a couple of nasty anonymous phone calls you say that the ten handle translation of the old the New Testament is the breakthrough in Boston since they burned I mean he's both a great model a great writer and the Grand Bigot with that it's not full they were all bigots of goals they would all I'm very glad to see you and myself crucified angry anti-semites but it went with the territory as it were Tindale was martyred burned alive before he could finish his translation of what he called the Old Testament as you will notice throughout this look the shadow of a great rock I insist upon referring to it as the original testament Tomahawk the Hebrew Bible and what is called the New Testament by its proper name the belated testament which is also beginning to get into the usual difficulties but that's fun Tindale was burned alive before he could translate the prophets and most of the great writings and that's how a loss because tremendous writer in every way you compare to Shakespeare and Milton I would say that the greatest writer certain in English paps in any language I'm able to read is of course we shakespeare indeed have now reached a point where I've totally infuriated but I like doing that of course with them the horrible shakespeare establishment these dryers dust moldy fix calls by simply saying there is no God but God his name is William Shakes sure of course after Shakespeare you have to put chaucer stunning extraordinary writer without really Shakespeare did not have been possible then tindale and Milton I would say of almost equal imminence the English novel sales of Daniel Defoe and John Bunyan at its very beginning wouldn't have been possible without Tindale he was not a lyrical writer but a very great narrative genius I of course New Testament which was complete is the entire basis if the King James New Testament and is major writing is largely preserved in the Geneva Bible and subsequently in the King James Bible and various scholars who have said that it would be very difficult to think of the style of certain moments in King Lear without the Tim Daly an element in the Geneva Bible our I think basically justified you say that the two greatest works in the English language are composed really within a decade need

Tony Awards Preview

"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

"And we only found it all out in the last ten years, quite spirituality. I didn't think of really processed it properly every day getting inside my grandmother skin, which is profound when your kid you put adults on a pedestal, and you see them in a certain way, and so need to get onto my grandmother at the age of nineteen and to tell her story, and then tell my dad's story at the age of eighteen that's been really amazing for me. Glenda, you've been nodding while she's been talking. And I'm thinking of how you've said that you've worked with men most of your life because the theater doesn't have as many roles for women. And I'm wondering if you are looking over at Ruthin thinking, it's changed a bit. It hasn't changed too. I mean, it's really scandalous. I find that contemporary dramatists. Don't fund women interesting. We are rarely ever the central dramatic engine with there's some kind of odd junked. There have been major changes and stills still that has not crept into the modern dramatists view of the world. And I find that quite bemusing, actually. And even if the lead from still the victims. I mean, I've been frustrated myself and that as a way of why I've been making my I'm walk will condition by the patriarchy.

The different woman is successful. She's exception the proves through if a woman is a failure that all failures, and that has not shift, and even though we have made strides and we'll hopefully continue to make them. It's very hard. Just one last question Ruth Wilson. So what is it like to be like right next? Glenda jet like crawled up does is there like a Spar treats me with overwhelming contempt. Maybe a special electrical field or some like an electric shock every time. I get close. Own asleep. Under somebody's being with you.

We don't change about it. Just drives us full with interacting and fine with each other. That's why you do the job. Of course. It is Glenda Ruth. Thank you both so much. Thank you. Thank you. King Lear stars Ruth Wilson. And Glenda Jackson and a crime has been committed. Glenda Jackson was not nominated for Tony for her Lear, maybe because she won last year for Edward Albee's.

"In a new production of King Lear when of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies Jackson plays Lear giving her the opportunity to take on one of the most challenging and prestigious roles in theatre history. But it's a role that for obvious reasons. Always goes to a man near times theater critic Ben Brantley wrote, she is delivering a powerful.

"All right time, full number two. And is my finds my this week is not for one hundred and fifty years Shakespeare's play the tragedy of King Lear had a happy ending that they still call it. The tragedy of the folks thought it might not work. So this is read this in the conversation. If I didn't know it, but basically people didn't like the fact that king there had a sad ending which spoiler alert. It does really really sad ending. It's a tragedy. So it was sort of a dumpted by this writer coordinate him Tate in sixteen eighty one. And he rewrote it. And he cooled it the historical play of King Lear and his three daughters to remove the oakwood tragedy. And yeah, the end Cudicini a- saves King Lear, he puts her on the throne does little love affair between her and remember Edgar in King Lear, who's kind of another nice guy by any flirting with good eater anchor in the in the original and yet. Happily ever after. So in the original lid is Delia dies. Everyone dies. Everyone everyone tiny. This. All right. It's a very concertinaed. Shakes isn't it? Within the space about five minutes about twelve people drop dead one after the other. Think he just gets to the I've only got one hundred words left. This is gonna kill everyone. He's not doing an essay, James. This is the way thing the original the Shakespeare borrowed from was not a tragedy. It didn't have this incredibly tragic ending where everyone dies. So the rewritten version that you talk about it was kind of a return to the previous addition ancient version could this Holland sheds chronicles, which has a lot of stories of kings. Shakespeare, plus from that King Lear Shakespeare's version was in sixteen six and it drew heavily on a play from fifteen ninety four. That's crazy, isn't it was the players the true chronicle history of the life and death of King Lear and has three daughters, but that guy still going to be a life, probably. I mean that is remaking diehard that was about thirty years ago. This is about half the time from diehard till now die Hatay was much closer than that. Remake..

This was a bold move for them and bold move for the government. We don't really understand it that way. We will go supreme court makes a decision if you don't like it. That's the way it is. If you like it, that's good. But we don't have this kind of activity, but there's a whole different. This is a very bold move on their part that that's absolutely correct. It's a very bold move.

But in the circumstances of the present case, she appears to be a person in the words of Shakespeare's kings, King Lear more sinned against than sinning. So that kind of puts a stamp so to speak of boldness of this opinion toward the end of the whole judgment. So I think they just went all out, they they said mob violence is not acceptable false allegations are not acceptable. And and people who make false allegations are themselves blasphemers exterior in twenty seconds here. Explain to people we have an office in Pakistan. Yes, we have an office in Pakistan Lahore, and we have a team of attorneys and other staff members. Who actually work on very similar cases? We have a couple of blasphemy cases that we're working on.

"Act three women's weapons ghana role regan and cordelia are all women living in a kind of mythical britain but shakespeare's audience would have seen them through the lens of womanhood in the early seventeenth century so to see how king lear can help us understand power and giving up power we have to look at the gender dynamics in the play and shakespeare society if you were woman in early seventeenth century england you were legally possession of your father until you were married after you wed you belong to your husband the only women who had any kind of independence were widows who could inherit their husband's property even widows are really supposed to be in charge of anything but england had just seen a very significant exception to these rules queen elizabeth i spoke to clear mcmanus about this she's a professor at the university of roehampton who focuses on women and performance during the elizabethan era says she's imagined as this exceptional unique woman who to allow tubing in charge she's not setting precedents in a way i'm one of the ways that she manages to be a woman in a very thorough going patriarchal world is by embracing this idea of janati he has a very masculine cool in which coaches competed for her favor of being incredibly treasuring being incredibly worshiping but with no real hope of anything actually coming with elizabeth gone and james firmly empower many people felt the nation was returning to the way things ought to be a feeling that shakespeare turns on its head just like he did with the unification so this is very much post elizabeth's play it's what you do if you put a woman show and the pitfalls and of course gonna regan shi'as pixels that so just codeine in king lear all three daughters have more power than they're supposed to and nothing good comes of it gonorrhea poisons regan and kills herself regan perpetrates the most horrific active onstage violence and all of shakespeare and cordelia leads an army to venture father but she leads it to defeat so it was king lear simply misogynist play one that argues that women shouldn't have any power i think phase two productions have to be really cat with this fly because very very easy to fool back into some of the patents that all that in shakespeare but i'm not gonna blame the money died in sixteen sixteen for not being feminist but i will ask directions now to be feminist so how do you handle gone role and regan's evil that's one of the big questions you face if you direct this play i have seen some terrible terrible ideas about this in my time one answer always seems to be and this i find so shaming is that the costume designer just puts a lot of leather on regan gone role there's been some really embarrassing sort of jacket solutions that they've gone with the most recent one that we saw the antony scher had very strong on roll who was extremely reasonable but you actually saw her going mad because she was so much like her father that the two of them would snap at servants and almost identical ways the temptation to dress regan gone real in leather is so strong because his lear's daughters gain power they become more masculine gone regan become more forceful and direct and cordelia literally leads an invading army as it attacks britain and lear well as he loses power he becomes feminized remember when i said that lear is told that without the crown he's nothing well the word nothing is a major motif in this play it said thirty four times in various contexts including leers famous answer to cordelia that nothing will come of nothing nothing had many meanings in shakespeare's day one of those meanings which he used frequently throughout his career with slang for female genitalia lear's emotional outbursts would have read as feminine as well if our capacity of his dareus hysteria which in the relations to come from the roving wounds that should road all live women's bodies in coups united no end of emotional difficulty in trouble lear references this roaming womb in the play he says how this mother swells up to would line hot to how climbing zero aligns kind of crazy kind of absurd in one way but the rainy day speak of this dread and fear of the other on the other is just vanity as lear loses power he experiences potato of what it's like to be a woman in his society and in.
