King Lear Essential Quotes

Authority is essential to society, but what we called in King Lear "transcendental" authority, with an executive ruler on top, depends on the rulers understanding of equity. If he hasnt enough of such understanding, authority becomes a repressive legalism. Legalism of this sort really descends from what is called in the Bible the knowledge of good and evil. This was forbidden knowledge, because, as well see, its not a genuine knowledge at all: it cant even tell us anything about good and evil. This kind of knowledge came into the world along with the discovery of self-conscious sex, when Adam and Eve knew that they were naked, and the thing that repressive legalism ever since has been most anxious to repress is the sexual impulse.
— Northrop Frye —
