Tony Burton got near what I had been thinking, so I quote him here:

>When Cordelia asserts what we may loosely call her personal

>she comes close to the Lutheran "Here I stand"  "I can do no
>other" assertion of individual

I was fortunate enough to see King Lear at the Stratford Festival this
past summer/fall.  This was a production starring Christopher Plummer
and directed by Jonathan Miller and was incredible on any number of
levels.

But I especially loved how he portrayed that original scene with the
daughters
