What are we blind to and what do we see? King Lear gives us a profound look at the relationship between madness and sanity, impiety and devotion, and, most simply: parents and children. The tragedy lies in its vivid dramatization of what happens when choices fueled by fear and greed spiral out of control. With the story of the aging Lear and his three daughters--two wicked and one true--Shakespeare ultimately shows us that honesty and love can challenge the chaos and cruelty that attempts to obliterate it.
