    Nature In King Lear

    • 1004 Words

    Family relationships across time will identify with feelings of frustration that cause one to say hurtful things that they don’t really mean. Lear’s curse causes nature v disorder to reappear, causing a horrific storm to erupt. I believe this storm reflects the rage and madness brewing in Lear’s mind and the Elizabethan audience would have wholly embraced this notion. However, some modern viewers may have trouble accepting a spiritual connection between nature’s movement and human emotion. By giving away his power, Lear defies the natural order of the time and therefore disrupts nature. Lear’s anger towards Gonerill continues to proliferate through the use of metaphor “she has struck me with her tongue…” meaning Gonerill has emotionally hurt him with her harsh words. As well as the technique of a simile “most serpent like upon the very heart” the connotation being that Gonerill has furtively betrayed him. By the daughters upsetting Lear and the accepted state they disrupt the natural world, which is why he calls them “unnatural hags”. At this point I feel Lear’s madness overwhelms his love for his daughters and the play becomes truly tragic for all characters. It is ironic that the Fool has predicted many of the events unfolding that lead to the King’s madness. The Fool warns, “Winter’s not gone yet, if the wild geese fly that way,” using Winter as a symbol for dark or stormy times ahead. The Fool is correct in his prediction not only metaphorically but literally…

    until I faced life more for myself, that I noticed how so many things in my life that used to feel so bright were coated in black. Each year that I lived cognizant of the unrelenting illness that was cast onto my mom, I felt as if someone colored on a portion of my mind with a black marker and took my rose-tinted glasses, cracked them, and drove them into my eyes. I will never be sure if that was just me growing up or having a mother that suffered from depression or both. When I was 14 years…

My pain was deep and I wanted it left alone. When I shared with some close people in my life the MRI found nothing, I received the response maybe now “I” could put this behind “me” and just accept Miranda the way God had created her. I felt like burning flames of arrows were piercing my heart. Surely, God did not make my child obese…

    I was extremely disappointed that my teammate thought she could take advantage of me. I felt betrayed and stood confused about how I should handle the situation. With this dilemma I had to decide not only what was best for Allison and myself; but what was best for my entire team.

    expect what was about to happen. The muddy soccer ball came towards me like a cheetah trying to catch its prey. Somehow I missed the ball and I did not see the horrendous hole that was covered with muddy grass. Before I knew it I was on the ground. I was sunk into a hole with mud all over my faded blue jeans. I was wet and dirty. Of course everyone saw me fall down and started laughing at me. “Hahaha Gricelda fell. What an idiot,” I heard someone say. I just heard everyone laughing at me like…
