Flashcards in Edmund Deck (4)
G Wilson Knight
"this is the key to Edmund's 'nature'. He repudiates and rejects 'custom', civilisation. He obeys 'nature's' law of selfishness."
"Edmund's status as a bastard is crucial because he was conceived outside of human society's inharmonious order, with its moral standards, and is thus free to deny them."
"Edgar and Edmund are a contrasted pair- both are men of penetration, energy and skill, one on the side of evil, the other on the side of good."
