Revenge & Justice Brainstorm:
Edgar is able to take his revenge on Edmund by killing him in a fight in Act 5: Scene 3. He took revenge for Edmund doing him and his father wrong.
Because of the mistreatment he has suffered by his two daughters, Lear swears to take "such vengeance" agasint his two daughters, Goneril and Regan.
Gloucester also hopes that Lear is able to take his revenge agasint his two daughters.
After he is defeated by his half-brother Edgar, Edmund admits to all the bad things he has done and he has admitted to doing much more than he has said. After admitting to all this, he dies due to the fight agasint Edgar.
Edmund believes he is getting justice for himself by doing what he does in the play because he believes that he deserves more and better even though he is illigitimate.
Cordelia risks everything to bring her two elder sisters to justice by invading England with her french army to put Lear back on the thrown. The french troops are defeated and Edmund has Cordelia executed after she and Lear are taken prisoners.
Lear believes that he is doing the right thing in Act 1: Scene 1 by disowning Cordelia and banishing her from the kingdom along with Kent. This would be a lack of judgement and rough justice.
Gloucester would also be an example of someone who has lack of judgement who believes he is bringing Edgar to justice by arresting him after he see's the fake letter that frames him. Without confronting Edgar about the letter, Gloucester automatically wants Edgar captured and brought to justice.
Cornwall And Regan:
Since Gloucester is a traitor in the eyes of Cornwall and Regan now that he has Cordelia's letter, they believe they are bringing Gloucester to justice by capturing him, interrogating him and then gouging out both his eyes.
