1. Lear disowns Cordelia, divides his kingdom between his two other daughters, Lear banishes Kent for telling him that Cordelias love for him is more than his daughters, Goneril and Regan scheme in secrecy to reduce their fathers remaining authority
2. One instance of dramatic irony in act 1 is where lear disowns Cordelia when her statement about her love for him made so much more sense than the other daughters, yet they are the ones who get the kingdom. Another instance is when Kent speaks against king lear to tell him this and warn him what might happen but lear does not listen and is stubborn. Another instance is
a. The father is stubborn, Goneril and Regan are liars and their love for their father is fake so they are manipulative, and Cordelia is smart and tells the truth about loving her father the most but also says that not all her love can be directed at her father because the man she marries must get her love too.
