KING LEAR - Act 2 Scene 4
1 Lear arrives at Gloucester's castle wondering why Kent didn't come back with Regan and Cornwall's message explaining their movements.
2 Lear is shocked at the sight of Kent in stocks
3 The Fool mocks Kent while Lear refuses to believe that Cornwall and Regan were to blame for his servant's shame
4 Lear questions Kent how this came to pass and Lent explains he was bring the letter of his arrival to Regan, but interrupted by Goneril's messenger Oswald. We also learn that Cornwall and Regan left home immediately after receiving Goneril's letter
5 The Fool maks a vigorous expression which is then followed by Kent's narration of imagery of wild geese and winter that suggests there is worse to come. The Fool continues to speak in riddles about fathers and daughters, but Lear doesn't pay attention to him because he is more concerned with his own mental state.
