Act 5 Scene 2

Scene 2

[Alarum within. Enter, with Drum and Colors, Lear,
Cordelia, and Soldiers, over the stage, and exit.]
[Enter Edgar and Gloucester.]


EDGAR 
 Here, father, take the shadow of this tree
 For your good host. Pray that the right may thrive.
 If ever I return to you again,
 I’ll bring you comfort.

[5]GLOUCESTER   Grace go with you, sir.
[Edgar exits.]
[Alarum and Retreat within.]


[Enter Edgar.]


EDGAR 
 Away, old man. Give me thy hand. Away.
 King Lear hath lost, he and his daughter ta’en.
 Give me thy hand. Come on.

GLOUCESTER 
 No further, sir. A man may rot even here.


[10]EDGAR 
 What, in ill thoughts again? Men must endure
 Their going hence even as their coming hither.
 Ripeness is all. Come on.

GLOUCESTER   And that’s true too.
[They exit.]
