Wipe that Lear off your face
Jay Tea over at Wizbang! has a tale to tell, a story of sisters, an examination of the sources of power, and, as he says, any resemblance to anybody you'd be likely to recognize is "purely coincidental."
(Cordelia's plight, I thought, was rather sad, though I tend to think that Goneril's frustrations were at least partially self-inflicted.) Posted at 8:09 AM to Political Science Fiction
Thanks for the linkage! And by the way, you're the only one so far to pick up on the origins of the sisters' names. It actually fit rather well until I decided I wanted to include a fourth sister. I went NUTS trying to find four sisters, and ended up just grabbing Prospero's daughter to fill out the quartet. It was kind of a shame, because it worked out rather well before I included Miranda.
