“Songs of Cordelia en sammensmeltning af kvindestemmerne fra Shakespeares King Lear i fire sange.
Karakteren, som driver handlingen frem i King Lear, er Edmund – bastardsøn af Jarlen af Gloucester og en af Shakespeares mest sammensatte skurkeroller, ærgerrig, såret, nådesløs; til sidst får han indsigt i sig selv og sine handlingers katastrofale konsekvens – mange er døde. I et sonoffer giver Edmund sit liv og kongeriget genopstår ved Edward den gode halvbror.
Det er mytisk urstof som ligger til grund for King Lear – ‘Yet Edmund was beloved’ er en pendant til
Kuno Kjærbye
