I have noticed, and found nowhere mentioned, that LEAR seems in some
sense a cautionary tale for those who ignore Cicero's advice in DE
SENECTUTE.

 The current issue of "Forethought," a publication of Chase Manhattan
Bank, offers the following:

"Shakespeare's tragedy _King Lear_ offers a cautionary tale of what can
happen when making decisions about the division of family assets among
children..."

[...especially when a public trust has been tragically misconceived as
"family assets."]
