King Lear, one of Shakespeare's darkest and most savage plays, tells the story of the foolish and Job-like Lear, who divides his kingdom, as he does his affections, according to vanity and whim.

Comment List (Total:16)

  •     Good intro to Skakespeare. Interesting and easy enough to understand.
  •     I'm a fan of the layout of Folger Shakespeare Library. The covers are also beautiful, but the play on the right, explanation of archaic terms on the left style is very helpful to the reader and makes getting into Shakespeare much easier.King Lear is a great tragedy. It is very enjoyable.
  •     Excellent collection of essays that enable students to consider the play in its historical context.
  •     This is a fantastic edition of King Lear. The introductory material is invaluable, and the notes are thorough and helpful.
  •     As expected, required for college.
  •     Shakespeare is always a good read
  •     Satisfied received as expected. But shipping a bit slow. Minus one star
  •     Beware of the KIndle edition. It does NOT contain the annotations (nor the line numbers)
  •     Needed for school it worked
  •     The Tragedy of King Lear is a gem with keen insights into the ways that people can be superficial at their own peril and the peril of those they love. Unfortunately, I read the Kindle version. As with many Kindle books that involve formatting, the playscript was very difficult to follow due to erroneous breaks in the lines of text. Read King Lear as a physical book.
  •     Needed this for my English class. Not a huge fan of Shakespeare, but it was an interesting read. The product itself is fine and well made.
  •     These "Made Easy" series are brilliantly presented. I want to read them all.
  •     Buyers should be aware of the fact that this is a translated version of the text, not an original. I still enjoyed it, but I found myself also consulting traditional translations. Still, I certainly hold Burton Raffel in high regard, and the book has a Harold Bloom essay included. Harold Bloom!
  •     Like I say about all Shakespeare: the Arden versions are my favorite. I own about a third of the Canon in them already. The footnotes are my favorite parts about it, and they're great because I don't have to carry my Lexicon around everywhere.King Lear is a brilliant play, all around. Between the family ties, the love and lust, and just the crazy existential dialogue, it's just a great read all-around.
  •     I'm using this as a more portable version of the same plays in Norton's Shakespeare by Greenblatt, which is too darn big to lug around conveniently. So I ordered the Dover plays at their cheap price for convenience. Don't let the price make you think they aren't worth much. They are great for taking notes in and contain all the information I need. I can always look online for more info if I need it. These are a great bargain. Norton's Shakespeare by Greenblatt is the best, yes, but it's seriously like 12 lbs or so....and not cheap.
  •     Meh. Too much hype. Was bored and of course everyone ends up dead. The fool is the only character that is interesting.
