Description:

This play examines how the plays "King Lear" by Shakespeare and "Oedipus" by Sophocles both present characters who bring great harm both to themselves and to their families because they are blind (either literally or metaphorically) to the true nature of their relationships with other people. It looks at how Lear cannot distinguish between fawning flattery and love while Oedipus cannot recognize his own mother.

From the Paper:

"In both the plays King Lear and Oedipus we are presented with characters who bring great harm both to themselves and to their families because they are blind (either literally or metaphorically) to the true nature of their relationships with other people."
