In my personal thought King Lear and The Diviners are similar only in the aspect that both the works speaks about the attitude of daughters with respect to status and lifestyle. However, the protagonist of King Lear, Cordelia's attitude seems to be much in contrast with that of Morag in The Diviners. Goneril and Regan may be of the Morag's kind but this too is applicable only to a certain extend.
