The Ethics Of The Fool

- Although Hobbes has created a logical response to the Fool, I have some objections to his argument. According to Hobbes, every man has the right to self-preservation and are permitted to do whatever it takes to hold that right. This also means that the world’s worst criminal could reasonably refuse punishment. That person could escape imprisonment, lie under oath while in court, or commit theft and he or she could argue that it was all necessary for their self-preservation. Strictly speaking, this means anything one does could be deemed as necessary for his or her self-preservation and it could never be considered unjust or unreasonable....   [tags: Soul, Plato, Philosophy, Justice]

- King Lear: The Fool In Us       King Lear is without doubt Shakespeare's most nihilistic play.  It is a storm without clearing.  In this version of reality, faith is absurd.  The play is set in the pagan era, where King Lear loses all his faith in the gods.  However, we see the need for Christian revelation in the hopelessness of the play.  We also see in the character of the Fool a character who resembles the wisdom and words of the Apostle Paul "Let no man deceive himself.  If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool that he may be wise."1  These words are very similar to the function and meaning of the word fool in the play.  While fool in Shakespeare's...   [tags: King Lear essays]

- Importance of the Fool in King Lear   William Shakespeare's genius came from how closely he intertwined the two seemingly mutually exclusive realms to appeal to all socio-economic groups in his audience. The character of the Fool provides the closest intercourse of the two realms between King Lear's royalty and Poor Tom's poverty, while still maintaining their separation. The Fool's role in King Lear was to counteract the King's follies in order to bring him to his senses. With his honesty, wit, and clever wordplay that interweave foreshadowing and practical advice, the Fool entertains not only the King, but the audience as well, and brings some light and humour into this tragedy....   [tags: King Lear essays]

While the Fool and Cordelia both act in the Lear’s best interest, it is not always evident to Lear. The Fool’s actions often anger the King, and lead to an increase in his madness.

Although he seems to have great insight into much of the plays main events, he seems not to have any real influence on both the plot as well as the outcome of the play. He remains the sole character who does not have any direct link with the events of the plot, coupled with an unusually early exit; this raises the question of his significance.

- Early in Shakespeare’s play, King Lear, the main character King Lear can be described as a negatively one-dimensional fool. He is materialistic, physically abusive, childish, and egotistical. The comedic ‘rhythm’ that is shown is when the daughters work around Lear’s character to gain power with land he gifts to them. Shakespeare then introduces a transitional period, and uses the Fool as the comedic relief. The Fool works towards changing Lear into a complex person whom we can admire. (Person who doesn’t take things for granted) Lear decides to divvy up his land to his daughters, and he asks them, “Which of you shall say doth love us most, that we our largest bounty may extend?” Act1 Sc1 l...   [tags: King Lear, William Shakespeare, Edmund, Fool]
