King Lear shows that one condition is used consistenatly in Shakespeare's works to symbolize fate. Fate is often symbolized by the condition of nature gone wild in inexplicable ways related to animals, winds, storms and various elements of the supernatural. This is evident in Macbeth and The Tempest, along with others, as well.
