King Lear

King Lear

A king foolishly divides his kingdom between his scheming two oldest daughters and estranges himself from the daughter who loves him. So begins this profoundly moving and disturbing tragedy that, perhaps more than any other work in literature, challenges the notion of a coherent and just universe. The king and others pay dearly for their shortcomings–as madness, murder, and the anguish of insight and forgiveness that arrive too late combine to make this an all-embracing tragedy of evil and suffering. Each Edition Includes: • Comprehensive explanatory notes • Vivid introductions and the most up-to-date scholarship • Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English • Completely updated, detailed bibliographies and performance histories • An interpretive essay on film adaptations of the play, along with an extensive filmography

King Lear

"I feel that I have spent half my career with one or another Pelican Shakespeare in my back pocket. Convenience, however, is the least important aspect of the new Pelican Shakespeare series. Here is an elegant and clear text for either the study or the rehearsal room, notes where you need them and the distinguished scholarship of the general editors, Stephen Orgel and A. R. Braunmuller who understand that these are plays for performance as well as great texts for contemplation." (Patrick Stewart) The distinguished Pelican Shakespeare series, which has sold more than four million copies, is now completely revised and repackaged. Each volume features: * Authoritative, reliable texts * High quality introductions and notes * New, more readable trade trim size * An essay on the theatrical world of Shakespeare and essays on Shakespeare's life and the selection of texts

King Lear

King Lear

"Grace Ioppolo has prepared this Norton Critical Edition of Shakespeare's most important play from the 1623 First Folio text (with the most significant variants from the 1608 Quarto I interpolated). The edition provides a full discussion, in A Note on the Text and the comprehensive Textual Variants and Notes, of the textual transmission of the play, now the scholarly focus of discussions of Shakespeare as a reviser of his own work. A critical introduction, addressing King Lear's origins, its legacy, and its place in literature, theatre, and popular culture, makes clear that King Lear is now the central play of Shakespeare's canon for literary and theatrical audiences alike." "The "Sources" section helps readers navigate King Lear's rich history. Nine essential primary sources are reprinted, from which Shakespeare borrowed significantly in creating his play, along with two additional probably sources." "The "Criticism" section presents thirteen major interpretations of King Lear written since the eighteenth century as well as three adaptations and responses to it. A selected bibliography is also included." --Book Jacket.

The Tragedy Of King Lear

The Tragedy Of King Lear

One of the most popular of Shakespeare's plays, King Lear is also one of the most thought-provoking. The play turns on the practical ramifications of the words of Christ that we should render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and unto God that which is God's. When confronted with the demand that she should render unto Caesar that which is God's, Cordelia chooses to "love and be silent". As the play unfolds each of the principal characters learns wisdom through suffering. This edition includes new critical essays by some of the leading lights in contemporary literary scholarship.

Shakespeare S King Lear With The Tempest

Shakespeare S King Lear With The Tempest

Although he is considered to be the world's greatest dramatist, Shakespeare seems to have escaped the detection of thinkers on politics and the philosophic tradition of thought on man. Shakespeare's 'King Lear' with 'The Tempest' is Mark McDonald's inquiry into the political philosophy of William Shakespeare through a reading of King Lear with reference to The Tempest. McDonald follows an argument connecting King Lear to the question of natural right and to changes in the orders of the western world at the beginnings of modernity.
