Dowden, one of the most illuminating
of Shakespearean critics, has put this

Inexplicable riddles! Is life made

elements are needed lo convey the
horror, the sffrightened storm, the
pitiless rain, tho crash of the ele

to the moral clash and ruin which
Goncril and Regan have brought up
on the world; nothing can be worse.
The universe is topsy-turvy, for its
moral foundation has been assailed.
The world must go to pieces, for lovo
and reverence and gratitude have
been dethroned and trampled upon,
