Realizes Goneril's harsh treatment of Lear
Cruelest of the sisters
Removes his privilege of a hundred knights
Bickers with Regan over ruling of kingdom
Plucks out Gloucester's eyes
Follows Goneril's decision to be harsh to Lear
At first she doesn't seem as bad as Goneril, but is in fact just as evil as her.
She refused to flatter Lear like her sisters did
Disguises himself when banished
The fool acts as Lear's conscience by speaking sense to him throughout.
Tragedy - why King Lear is a Shakespearean tragedy?
Lear decided to go against his divine right as king by dividing up his kingdom, this was seen as going against the gods
Flaw = love tet
The love test was based on which daughter could flatter him the most, "which of you shall we say doth love us most". It wasn't based on the ability of who would make the best ruler.
Through insanity Lear begins to realise his mistakes
He was helped by the Fool, Edgar (Poor Tom) and Kent
