Having been fooled by the language and turned mad, King Lear finally understands the very meaning to Cordelia’s “love and be silent.” By deconstructing King Lear’s relationship with his three daughters in a trial scene, “L.ear” examines the complexity of language and communication, and how it reflects the current political state.
