I thought the play was good.... in the sense that I read it and liked all the killings and deaths. But I was really starting to notice a reacurring theme of madness. Everywhere you look in Shakespeare's plays there is crazy guy or somebody going crazy. It seems so natural and everyone doesnt think twice about it. Lear goes mad and people expect it. He goes in and out of sainity like hes possessed. Not to mention that there are more crazy people just outside wandering around ready to take Gloucester away into the woods and if you are ever in need of being disguised just put on some tattered clothes and say your mad people will belive anything. I just thought it was weird that so many people out their were crazy or about to go crazy.
