 >Or, as Alexander Pope succinctly put it:
 >
 >      Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,
 >      As, to be hated, needs but to be seen;
 >      Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
 >      We first endure, then pity, then embrace.

And see the beginning of Goddard's Meaning of S chapter on Lear. Best, S
