Blow!’ Although the play is set in a pagan setting, Lear prays to the gods to expose criminals and later throughout the play, for the wellbeing of Cordelia and it is through these cries of help that we can notice that no matter how much the king prayed for righteous justice to be served that his prayers remained unanswered. Proof of this is how he calls his daughters ‘pernicious’ in Act III Scene i and in Act III scene iii; also called ‘The Mock Trial Scene’, where Lear states: ‘I here take my oath before this honourable assembly, she [meaning Goneril] kicked the poor King her father.’ It is ironic how Lear thought that he was all-powerful in the first Act whereas now he is making an oath in the name of the gods that what he is stating is true and this shows the resignation he has towards the previous life he led. Meanwhile the gods’ injustice is also present in Gloucester’s subplot.

This is a far more delicate way of saying if you end up with ignorance you were not highly favored by God, but if you have knowledge you were and will be favored by god and will end up in heaven. Ignorance is similar to a song written by Mumford and son “Babel” which is the examination of the bourgeois mindset. They comment on the pelagian nature of society, they are building their own 'tower of babel' because they see the society collapsing behind their progressive thought, "I write home laughing, 'look at me now,' the walls of my home come crumbling down." He "goes along" with this mindset; all his life his "greed and pride" has been nursed by society and he accepts this mentality for its face value. He is promised success, which they will "slip into the cloud."

And so, Hester, I drew thee into my heart, into its innermost chamber, and sought to warm thee by the warmth in which thy presence made there!” (69). Chillingworth’s compassion and desire for love and good, over the cruel and evil atmosphere he later develops, reveals that he was not always wandering down the road of revenge, but was a man of virtue. His spiraling fall into malice and morally self destructive actions only occur after he sets himself down the road to find the other person who wronged him, the man who shares his wife’s sin, and take vengeance upon him. Roger continues his personal decline by betraying his human nature and turning to a more demonic nature. “The physician advanced directly in front of his patient, laid his hand upon his bosom, and thrust aside the vestment that, hitherto, had always covered it even from the professional eye.
