King Lear

This great stage of fools.

Heavy weighs the crown. King Lear depicts a royal unraveling, as the eponymous king slowly descends into madness and squanders his kingdom and fortune after bequeathing everything to his sycophantic daughters. First produced in 1608, then later revised for publication in the First Folio, this edition combines both versions, and offers a comprehensive analysis as well as an introduction by Shakespeare scholar Stephen Orgel.
