Note to King Lear, 2.2.173: "Fortune, good night: smile once more; turn thy wheel!"
Kent [in stocks] is hoping for a change in fortune. Fortune's wheel belongs to the goddess Fortuna, who spins it at random, changing the positions of those on the wheel some suffer great misfortune, others gain windfalls. Fortune appears in all paintings as a woman, sometimes blindfolded, "puppeteering" a wheel."
