Evancio/Gomez

Throughout the novel, the presence and absence of honesty reveals a lot about each character. Cordelia chooses to be honest with her father, contrasting her sisters' long-winded remarks. As result of that, the king of France takes her as his queen. Edmund's lack of honesty displays his malicious intent. Kent remains honorable, but disguises himself to protect the king. The fool, through his ballads and jokes, shares his insights about the king and his daughters.
