Sajid Malik In: Drama Write a note on theme of “Nothing” in King Lear Write a note on theme of “Nothing” in King Lear King LearShakespeare 1 Answer Lucifer Morningstar When angels fall, they also rise 2 Questions 268 Answers 120 Best Answers 1,299 Points View Profile Lucifer Morningstar When angels fall, they also rise Added an answer on July 29, 2019 at 10:38 pm Nothing is a pervasive in King Lear. ‘Nothing will come of nothing’ is Lear’s advise to Cordelia, asking her to plead her case for inheritance by waxing lyrical about him. She does nothing of the sorts and gets nothing in return. On the other hand the praise of Goneril and Regan for their father, in reality, is nothing. Their plan to usurp power ends in nothing. Lear is told by his fool that he is nothing without his crown. After Cordelia’s death, Lear realises the nothingness of existence. Gloucester’s blindness exposes him to a dark world of nothingness. Therefore, even after schemes of greed and acts of goodness, the entire sum comes out to be nothing or a whole lot of empty. 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.
