God created us with different characteristics and our own self-concusses. But people will think about this play with anger and hate. What I am talking about is the wickedness and the cruelty set in this play. If we are to have a happy ending, we are to reflect on one's action and hope that we have the knowledge and the common sense to see and change our wicked ways. In Shakespeare's 5 th play, King Lear, there are two rules of man that we are suppose to see. One is " What goes around, comes around." The second is "Evil never wins." So our question is "Did King Lear deserved to be rejected by his daughters?" The answer is no.
So I choose to take the side of King Lear, try to be a loyal servant and to see how this question came into this conclusion. The first reason is that King Lear is that he is old and he has been through a lot. Even though he made some wrong decisions, it isn't right to kick out a member of the family and to say that "Your on your own." The evidence is when the first daughter, Goneril, kicked him out only half the time when she was supposed to keep him. His second daughter, Regan, rejects him completely. This is cruel and unusual because he gave his daughters everything they may possibly want: money, wealth and power. After he was stripped of his power, his daughters back stabbed him.
They told him that they loved him in order to get his power. After that, he was no use to them. The second reason why King Lear shouldn't be rejected from his family is because in the beginning of Shakespear's play, King Lear starts off as a respected and powerful king. As the story progresses, the king loses his power because of his own stupidity and blindness. Reasons that I think why the king lost power due to his own stupidity and blindness is because he could of had bad advice. Another valid reason is because of his wealth.
People are known to be foolish or to listen to the foolish because of their own greed. One more reason why King Lear shouldn't be rejected from his family is because of his power. People with power grow to be corrupt and breaking the bonds of their subject (just like King Solemn who lived in a life of luxury while his subjects lived in poverty in the bible). So to summarize my reasons why King Lear shouldn't be rejected from his daughters and family is because his was a good man who listened to foolish advice, he was living in a life of luxury so he no longer felt how his subjects felt and King Lear had power.
Since the subjects never had power, King Lear no longer sympathized with his fellow beings. Let me begin the through research to support my findings. The first reason I suggested about the reasons why King Lear shouldn't be in complete isolation from his family is because He is a king listening to bad advice. At the beginning of the story, King Lear is king of Britain. He decides that he is tried of being King. King Lear, acting like a rude king, decides to embarrass his daughters to say how much they love their dear beloved father.
The daughters name of King Lear is Reagan, Goneril and Cordelia. Goneril goes first and tell the king that she adores him and would never disrespect him. The king is pleased so he gives Goneril third prize. Reagan goes second and tell the king that she loves him so much, she doesn't like anything else at all. The king is pleased and gives her second prize. The last daughter named Cordelia says that she loves her father exactly as a daughter should.
Lear goes crazy and disinherits her. After that, the king banishes Earl of Kent for speaking to her defense. The first prize is divided between the other two daughters. This may be wrong to do but he did indeed listened to his daughters reasons and did not interrupted them. The King justly gave out the prizes evenly. After the third daughter spoke her mind to her father, he gone mad.
This happened because he wanted more from his daughters. He got it from the other two, but not from the third. He didn't get want he want and therefore got real sore at her. Who doesn't want to get mad because he or she didn't get it. I say that he acted like a human being. The third reason why King Lear shouldn't be separated from his family is because his family had already grown a custom to him.
After the rejection, the king set out for forgiveness and pardon from the third daughter. He was forgiven and they lived in peace and harmony. Although a happy ending, deep down, she is steaming mad. But she doesn't show this action because the love for her father overpower revenge and hate. This is the kind of act we expect from a person of pure of heart.
The conclusion: A man that did evil deeds, cannot be responsible for the acts of destiny. It was the destiny that exiles the third daughter and destiny is the one that brings a father and a daughter closer than before.
