What is tragic flaw in King Lear? 2Zeeshan Ali answered 2 months ago

The tragic flaw in King Lear is Lear’s pride and arrogance. His pride forces him to make a terrible judgment call in disinheriting Cordelia, only because she finds hard to enamor him with lavish praise. He misjudges her inability to her lack of love and this sets into motion Lear’s tragic end. He is rebuffed by his other daughters and loses his power. He is forced to wander the heath in terrible weather and suffers from mental breakdown. Eventually, he dies a lonesome death.
