Good Vs Evil in King Lear

Uploaded by mountainlvr on Jan 15, 2012

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.
