Explain the importance of subplot in king lear

1 Answer

  1. The subplot in King Lear involves the family of Gloucester where he is the father, Edgar is his loyal son and Edmund is his deceitful (illegitimate) son.

    The story curve is similar to the main plot where the evil sibling wins his father’s approval and is able to arrogate all power to himself. The loyal and compassionate Edgar is forced to run for cover and assume an alias to save his life.

    In the end, Edgar is able to reunite with his father and reclaim his rightful inheritance. In the process, he  is able to exact revenge by killing Edmund.
