Explain gender roles in king lear

Explain gender roles in king lear

1 Answer

  1. In King Lear, gender roles are portrayed differently through different characters. Regan and Goneril are shown as power hungry, manipulative and head strong while Cordelia is meek and compassionate.

    The two evil sisters are decision makers in their houses and command their parishes whole Cordelia puts her love in  building he own home.

    These roles are contrasting but their ends is similar. All three are overpowered and killed by men and accused of dishonesty (By Lear in the case of Cordelia).
