Explain pathetic fallacy in king lear

Explain pathetic fallacy in king lear

1 Answer

  1. Pathetic fallacy is used in King Lear to project the internal emotional flux of the characters on to the physical elements of nature. The winds are assumed to being caused by invisible mouths which are goaded to crack their cheeks.

    The fire is ascribed thoughts while thunder is seen shaking and smiting the world. The scene describes a cataclysm and is exactly what King Lear is experiencing internally in Act III.
