viewers of Lear: They represent the audience that has always taken Goneril and Regan as villains. Whereas in Shakespeare, Lear considers Cordelia a serpent-toothed child who betrays her father, here Caroline’s betrayal is against her stand-in mothers Ginny and Rose. It is her love for Larry that marks her as the thankless child. We never actually see Larry’s most terrible sins; we only have Ginny and Rose’s accounts of them. The option exists that we are deliberately being shown not a revised view of Lear but an equally one-sided perspective, exactly as unfinished and unreliable as Shakespeare’s.
