His pride forces him to make a terrible judgment call in disinheriting Cordelia, only because she finds hard to enamour 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. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
