King Lear: William Shakespeare

( 40 )

Overview

A king foolishly divides his kingdom between his scheming two oldest daughters and estranges himself from the daughter who loves him.

    Great Read!

    This is another home-run by Shakespeare! A dysfunctional family in the middle of intrigue and war. A must read!

    A SHOCKING.. DISTURBING.. AND DEEPLY MOVING PORTRAYAL OF AN UNJUST UNIVERSE

    Certainly the most powerful and profound of all Shakespeare's plays. This one has to do with the ungratefulness of Lear's three daughters. Gonreil, Regan, and Cordelia whom he has divided his kingdom amongst the three of them. Except, Cordelia who has estranged herself from his love. Little does he know the two daughters whom he thinks love's him most are actually wicekdly plotting against him. I thought this had to be the most triumphant play written by Shakespeare. A glorious, and overwhelming account of selfishness, ingraitude, madness, and evil amongst a family seperated by hatred.

    more from this reviewer

    One of Shakespeare's more boring plays

    I bought this for a college class and really did not enjoy it at all. Even after seeing the play performed, it just dragged. I'm not sure why King Lear has so much critical acclaim, but thankfully not everyone has the same taste or opinion.
