I have to confess I find this thread quite illuminating. Learning to
admire Goneril, Regan and Edmund, while despising Cordelia and Kent, can
now take its place beside admiring Iago while despising Desdemona,
admiring Claudius while despising Hamlet, admiring Shylock while
despising Antonio, Bassanio and Portia, admiring Malvolio while
despising Olivia and Viola, admiring Falstaff while despising Hal, and
admiring Don John while despising Benedick.
Imagine what our moral values would be like without this instruction.
