King Lear's "wicked" daughter finally has her say. Read by Scoot.
This soliloquy, translated by Dora Round, is from Čapek's highly amusing book of sketches based on famous people real and imagined, Apocryphal Tales. However, the Czech writer is best known for having popularized the term "robot"* (from his play R.U.R.) and for his unparalleled novel, War with the Newts.
(*It was Karel's brother, the painter and writer Josef, who actually invented the word "robot.")
