Write a note on betrayal in king lear

1 Answer

  1. Betrayal is widespread in King Lear. Cordelia is betrayed by his father. Lear is betrayed by his two eldest daughters. Albany is betrayed by his wife Goneril. Gloucester and Edgar are betrayed by Edmund.

    Edgar is also betrayed by his father Gloucester. Kent is betrayed by his master Lear. In the end, all these betrayals bring much grief to the ones perpetrating them. Both Goneril and Regan lose power and die.

    Gloucester is blinded and Edmund is killed by Edgar. King Lear learns about his error is judgment and laments the loos of Cordelia and dies sad and alone.
