8. It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Motif

King Lear

William Shakespeare, 1608
Famous for: Betrayal, madness, death … and the squelching of freshly-plucked eyes.

It wouldn’t be a Shakespeare play if at least one of Shakespeare’s characters didn’t go mad. But in King Lear, madness represents more than just a betrayal of the mind. Madness is actually King Lear’s second motif.
