Read the following paragraphs by the 18th century literary critic Samuel Johnson, then describe why you agree or disagree with his assessment of King Lear’s ending.
“Shakespeare has suffered the virtue of Cordelia to perish in a just cause, contrary to the natural ideas of justice [and] to the hope of the reader. . . . A play in which the wicked prosper, and the virtuous miscarry, may doubtless be good, because it is a just representation of the common events of human life: but since all reasonable beings naturally love justice, I cannot easily be persuaded, that the observation of justice makes a play worse; or, that if other excellencies are equal, the audience will not always rise better pleased from the final triumph of persecuted virtue…
“And if my sensations could add anything to the general suffrage, I might relate that I was many years ago so shocked by Cordelia’s death that I know not whether I ever endured to read again the last scenes of the play till I undertook to revise them as an editor.”
Respond to your classmates’ posts by offering specific, additional evidence from the play that confirms or complicates your classmates’ arguments.
