William Shakespeare’s King Lear is a symphony about old age, loss of possessions, loss of power, loss of love. It is about the catastrophe of absolute tyranny. It is about a world where good and evil people suffer in equal measure. It is about loyalty, understanding, forgiveness, and the restoration of love. It is about the entire human condition. In short, it is one of the greatest plays ever written. The Folger LIbrary Edition is preferred, but any edition is acceptable.
