6. Theme 2: Reconciliation! (After all that betrayal, too!)

King Lear

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

If you’re the kind of person who shies away from brutality, you might have a hard time stomaching most of King Lear. But Shakespeare’s play isn’t totally hopeless. In fact, King Lear’s second theme offers a pinprick of light in all the darkness. This Recap has more on the theme of reconciliation in King Lear.
