King Lear Appropriate Ending Opening Paragraph:Thesis:
King Lear concludes well, it leaves little to the imagination of the reader in the way of ambiguity. First Paragraph:
The story is overall Concluded when there are only main characters left, Kent, Albany, and Edgar, with kent about to die. When everyone else is Dead there can be no more story that includes them, leaving little room for imagination. (Exception is fool who likely played cordelia, one line refrences "My Fool Is Dead.")
Second Paragraph: king Lear ends with Good and Evil Characters all killed in assorted dramatic Ways. This comes right after a battle Between Countries, making the ending not only conclusive with the killing of the characters but also Satisfactory with the killing of the evil characters whose deeds the readers had seen throughout the book, such as taking edmund's philandering and gloucester's eyes. "Out Vile Jelly!" Third paragraph: King Lear's Ending is satisfactory to a Tragedy because the story not only is based on human suffering but the death of the evil characters and the drama brought on by their actions is enough to bring the audience pleasure, thus fitting king lear into the theme of tragedy quite well. Conclusion: King Lear was ended in a
trgic way that both ended well and offered the reader satisfaction.
