King Lear

By William Shakespeare (11)

When the aging Lear attempts to divides his kingdom between three daughters, chaos follows in Shakespeare’s King Lear, the tale of a tragic hero who is great of soul, and short on insight. Casting off his beloved youngest daughter, Cordelia, when she will not flatter him in a contest for property, Lear falls victim to the wicked Goneril, Regan, and their ambitious husbands. The noble Kent tries to discourage Lear from his folly, to no purpose. The raging king is driven from one daughter’s home to the next, stripped of his knights, and finally exposed to a terrible storm on a lonely heath, his sole companion being his Fool. There he has an epiphany regarding justice, while around him rages civil war. In a parallel plot, the nobleman Gloucester allows his illegitimate son, Edmund, to betray his younger and loyal son, Edgar. Both Lear and Gloucester are allowed a glimpse of the truth, and a chance at reconciliation before death, but for Cordelia, who is captured by her enemies, mercy comes too late. The fairy tale plot reveals the Elizabethan prejudice against weak monarchy, and Shakespeare’s universal vision of justice.
