What's not to love? Love, jealousy, intrigue, loyalty, suffering, faithfulness, repentance, love again. Just finished teaching this to a group of high schoolers and they got a lot out of it, as did I in high school.
Pocket edition of Shakespeare's most famous play.
I found the footnotes in this version fairly odd. I haven't read any Shakespeare since high school, so I don't know if they're better or worse than others, but they were lacking. There were translations for some words that certainly didn't need it (for instance "obey" was updated to "submit to"). There were other times when I was hoping for a little more context, and I didn't get any information.
Although I have none to recommend, I'd take my chances with a different edition of this title.
One of Shakespeare's best!
King Lear is probably my favorite work by Shakespeare.
This is a wonderful introductory Shakespeare book. The full story is laid out in comic style presentaion. Famous quotes are kept as Shakespeare wrote them, but other text is a more modern, lower reading level text. Includes vocabulary list and discussion on the last page.
Includes a chapter on: the theatrical world,the texts of Shakespeare, an intoduction and notes on the text. The Shakespeare play is presented in the original language.
