This paper analyzes the misidentified interpretation of the crack the "square of sense" within Shakespeare's "King Lear". The paper discusses how when Mowat and Werstine define the phrase, they immediately single out the word 'square' as the focal point of their understanding of Regan's profession of love. The paper asserts that in arguing against their definition, the editors fail to miss the overarching collective of the phrase within the context of the plot, which defines the measuring of the senses through rational thought.
