King Lear is an example of a classic tragedy. King Lear, the main character, is a tragic hero, which is one of the elements of a tragedy. When King Lear asks his daughters to express their love for him, he makes a mistake. One of his daughters was exiled. Cornelia, despite the fact that she is the one person who really loves him. He goes crazy when he learns that his other daughters, General and Reagan, do not love him. Lear, on the other hand, ultimately recognizes his errors and attempts to repair his connections.
Because of his suffering, which was brought on by his pride, King Lear learns to judge individuals based on their character rather than their looks, making him a tragic hero. King Lear is a complicated figure with many faults. His hubris, on the other hand, is the fault that causes him the greatest difficulty. He makes mistakes, but is too arrogant to acknowledge them. His expulsion of Cornelia is one of his most egregious errors. "Let it be so as thou, my daughter," Lear declares. Cornelia is the object of Lear's renewed enmity. He feels enraged, despite the fact that she is being truthful. This is a great illustration of Learns' pride in his work.
He gets arrogant and furious the moment someone does not utterly love him. He immediately disowns and bans his own daughter, despite the fact that she is the only one who really loves him. During his speech, he says that he is no longer Cornelia's father due to her heinous acts. He is terrified that someone would not worship him as a god. Therefore, the only way he can reclaim his nobility is to exile her and demonstrate that he has control over her. This is a terrible characteristic that contributed to Learns' decline.
Even General and Reagan acknowledge that Lear has made a grave error. "He always loved our sister the most, and what bad judgment he had now thrown her off shows too glaringly," Goner says. Even the heinous sisters see what Lear does not. It is shown that, despite their evil and selfish natures, the General and Reagan understand that Cornelia is caring and Lear is being harsh. It is apparent from the start of the play that Lear does not want to acknowledge his faults, which is a problem in and of itself. His arrogance cost him the kingdom.
The General and Reagan abandon him, and he is left to suffer alone amid the storm. He learns that one of the reasons he is a tragic hero is because of his pride. Lear suffers as a consequence of his pride. His misdiagnosis was the result of this encounter. Lear is abandoned in the midst of a storm by the General and Reagan. Lear's own daughters, whom he believes love him eternally, betray him. King Lear becomes insane after being trapped in a storm. He considers compliments to be more important than genuine emotions. From the beginning of the treachery, Lear anticipates that he would go insane.
"O Fool, I will go insane!" exclaims Lear. Lear has a vision of his own future. He is aware of his reactions and believes that this is the worst thing that has ever happened to him. King Lear becomes crazy to the point that he imagines his gathering. "I'll witness their trial but let them be transformed," Lear continues. Lear has reached the stage in his lunacy when he is totally insane, and he is attempting to repair his relationships despite the fact that it is not occurring. During this period, Lear is sad and suffering.
He's having new emotions and having to do things he's never had to do before. One of the reasons King Lear is a tragic hero is because of his suffering. Suffering teaches the King that he is incorrect and that his arrogance is a significant fault in his personality. This misdiagnosis is crucial to the narrative of the novel, since Lear now realizes he has made critical errors. Cornelia speaks to Lear and he behaves as if he doesn't know who she is. This is the first indication of this awareness. "If you have poison for me, I will swallow it," Lear confesses.
I know you don't love me since your sisters have done me harm in the past, as I recall ". Lear knows he misjudged Cornelia and feels terrible about it. King Lear knows that Cornelia will despise him and understands why she feels this way. All he asks for is Cordillera's forgiveness. He now knows genuine eve and realizes that having one true love is preferable to having many people fraudulently adoring you. This is a significant change in Learn's character and demonstrates his focus on his fatal defect
He now prioritizes other people's ideas and emotions above his own, and he is unafraid of mediocrity. His arrogance has vanished, and he has become a better guy. King Lear returns Cordillera's love and devotion at the conclusion of the play. "Her voice was sweet, delicate, and low, a wonderful thing in a woman," King Lear says. Lear not only realizes what genuine love is, but he also learns how to properly love others. Now that he knows how much he loves Cornelia, he appreciates her.
This misdiagnosis is one of Learns' characteristics, which makes him a sad hero. Through the primary character, King Lear, William Shakespeare's play King Lear educates about human sorrow. Learning from suffering demonstrates that before reaching complete awareness, all people must go through some kind of pain. This pain may be caused by the person's own errors, such as Lear's incorrect judgment of Cornelia and his other daughters. His anguish is caused by pride and a lack of understanding, he discovers. This anguish, however, leads to a misdiagnosis, making King Lear a tragic hero.
