On one hand is Cordelia, caring and compassionate and adhering to the popular image of womanly behaviour. On the flip side are Goneril and Regina who are barbaric and ambitious. They are devoid of emotions and are even more lustful and aggressive than their husbands. the seemingly despondent reaction of Lear when he learns about his dependence on his daughters may also point at the unacceptability of women as wise and just rulers. This creates a rather masculine portrayal of the female gender and a dismissal of them as worthy leaders in society. 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.
