Goneril: “I love you more than words can wield the matter; / Dearer than eye-sight, space, and liberty; / Beyond what can be valued” (1.1.58-60). As she speaks the words that Lear wants to hear she appears to be an obedient daughter. McLeish (1985, as cited in Halenárová, 2015) describes Goneril as a woman full of ambitions and desires, and just like her father when she doesn’t get what she wants she becomes mean. She resembles her father in another aspect as well, she has a poor judgment of character she trust Edmund. When she gets her part of inheritance she totally forgets her father and orders her servants to treat Lear sternly: “Put on what weary negligence you please”.

Bhanu Oruganty Miss Given World Literature 11 5 February 2018 Response 3 The concept The Poisonwood Bible is trying to bring to recognition is that there are always multiple perspectives to any story. The usage of several narrators allows one to see the same story from different points of views that all differ. It also displays how storytelling is a reflection of a person’s experiences and lives, because one’s experiences shape their perspectives or biases. For example, Adah’s more analytical perspective allows her to analyze situations life presents to her in a deeper level such as her ideas on the circle of life and Africa. This perspective allows her to be successful in her career field as well.

You spend time together doing the cool things that you both enjoy. You love seeing her grow up, even though you sometimes wish she could stay little forever. Like every parent and their children, there are bound to have many arguments through their life, but they are not life-changing problems, they hardly change the relationship between them.
