One suggestion:  "Edmund's Ancestry" (57-101) in John F. Danby's
*Shakespeare's Doctrine of Nature: A Study of King Lear*, London: Faber,
1961.

Dear Ellen,

For a discussion of Edmund's illegitimacy, see my book Alison Findlay,
*Illegitimate Power: Bastards in Renaissance Drama* (Manchester
University Press and St Martin's Press, Manchester, 1994). The
bibliography includes references to some other important pieces on
Edmund - including Janet Adelman's brilliant analysis in her book
*Suffocating Mothers* (Routledge, New York and London, 1992) which I
highly recommend to you.

Best wishes with your research.

Alison Findlay,
Lancaster University (UK)
