In the second paragraph of the analysis it states that Dorcas was raised by Malvonne, but actually she was raised by Alice Manfred. Alice still isn't her biological mother so it's still congruous with the point that all the main characters were raised by people other than their parents, but I thought it was worth pointing out.

Essay writing was never my forte as English isn’t my first language but because I was good at math so they put me into Honors English. I really couldn’t be assed with reading King Lear and then writing a 5,000 word paper on it so I looked up essay services and

was the first link to come up. I was kind of shocked with the quality of the paper they gave me. I received a very articulate and well-written piece of writing for like $20. Recommended it to a bunch of my foreign friends and now they use it too.
