King Lear’s subplot often reflects the main plot as Gloucester is also blind to his children’s true nature. Gloucester 's metaphoric blindness is caused by the anger and betrayal he feels from learning of his sons Edgar’s treacherous plan to kill him, due to his lack of sight and gullibility, he believes this lie told by the other son Edmund. Instead, of seeing what was going on, Gloucester falls for Edmunds tricks and ends up putting a bounty on good Edgar’s head.
