Flashcards in Goneril Deck (5)
"Goneril and Regan are gorgons rather than women".
"Goneril is the more formidable because the more incapable of any hatred which is not solid and four square. Regan acts under her sister's influence but has an eager venomousness of her own."
Lear is "willing to accept either [daughter] if she will only take his part against her sister".
"we feel that they have become to him some strange and monstrous species."

"Of the major characters in the play, only Goneril and Edmund stand out in their avoidance of repetitive ejaculations."
