King Lear and Cordelia, Act V, Scene 10 by James Barry (1741–1806)
The reprieve arrives too late to save Cordelia and Lear, desperately hoping she still lives, weeps with grief and says,
And my poor fool is hang'd! No, no, no life!
Why should a dog, a horse, a rat, have life,
And thou no breath at all? Thou'lt come no more,
Never, never, never, never, never!
Pray you, undo this button: thank you, sir.
Do you see this? Look on her, look, her lips,
Look there, look there!
With these last words he dies.
