This is from Act 5 Scene 3 of King Lear:
A plague upon you, murderers, traitors all!
I might have saved her. Now she’s gone for ever.—
Cordelia, Cordelia, stay a little. Ha?
What is ’t thou say’st?—Her voice was ever soft,
Gentle and low, an excellent thing in woman.—
I killed the slave that was a-hanging thee.
Do you think this would develop the theme of compassion or truth? Also is the structure prose, blank verse, or rhyming iambic pentameter I have trouble identifying these.
