Explain the quote “I stumbled when I saw”

Explain the quote “I stumbled when I saw”

1 Answer

  1. These are the words uttered by Gloucester when he realizes his own error in trusting Edmund over Edgar. Through these words, he want s to express his guilt  for the terrible decisions he made when he could see (before he turned blind).

    Therefore, when he had vision, he could not see clear enough to make the right call and trust Edgar over his scheming step brother Edmund.

    The phrase mulls over the idea that often people make horrible mistakes with open eyes which  are blinded by their arrogance or ignorance.
