In Shakespeare’s King Lear, King Lear dies in act 5 and do you know what Shakespeare has written? He has written He dies. That’s all nothing more No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant words he simply writes he dies. The culmination of the most influential work of dramatic literature is, he dies. It takes Shakespeare a genius to come up with he dies. And every time I read those two words I am filled with dysforia I know it’s natural to be sad but not because he dies not because of the words he dies, but because of the life we saw prior to the words.
End with a simple and modest, he dies.
