Inspiration: King Lear

O, let me not be mad, not mad, sweet heaven!/ I would not be mad /Keep me in temper./ I would not be mad. (Act 1 scene 5) Lead by his corrupt emotions and blindness to truth, King Lear is driven to face the beast of his darkness. He sows the seed to his own destruction, his madness projected onto the bleak and stormy landscape of the moors... where he stands holding his beloved and dead Cordelia.
