Interesting thread. I think literary analysis is a very helpful way of looking at psychology.

I acted as Cordelia in a student drama production when I was about fourteen, and over the years have often found her voice coming back to me, pure, logical, honest, brave, intransigent - a female version of the mythical hero.

Thank you for the references to Freud's paper on Lear - it has been very useful to go back to it. I had forgotten that he saw her as a symbol of death. Funny also that until this minute I had never been aware that there were incestuous undertones in her relationship with her father. I have felt so close to her, and yet have been very blind.

Lots of food for thought here.
