Lear’s daughter are forced to enter a battle to prove their love to him. Cordelia who truly loves her father is banished while the flatterers Goneril and Regan win his approval. Similarly, Kent is a loyal servant of Lear and is dismissed for preferring true compassion than empty agreement with the King. Edgar is another character who truly loves his father Gloucester and sticks with him even after he mistreats him. His and Claudia’s love is unselfish whereas Goneril, Regan and Edmund are antithetical to true love and believe in more carnal love of power, wealth and physical form. 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.
