Explain foreshadowing in king lear

Explain foreshadowing in king lear

1 Answer

  1. Many of the terrible events that occur in King Lear are foreshadowed in advance. The utter ruin of kingdom after Lear decides to divide it is foreshadowed by his declaration.

    Gloucester blindness is foreshadowed by multiple mentions of vision and ability of sight. Even Lear’s madness and exclusion is foreshadowed when his fool imagines how good a fool his master would be.

    One unfortunate outcome that is not foreshadowed and really sneaks up for the readers is Cordelia’s death.
