Shakespeare is, of course, the backbone of many literary studies. But is there a way to add something fresh and new to the works of the ancient bard? Gareth Hinds has created the graphic novel interpretation of one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, KING LEAR.

Although the presentation may be unique, the story holds true. The great king is dividing his realm. Three daughters will receive three portions, but each must prove herself worthy.

Lear's sanity is in question as he makes his demands known. The raging king could very well destroy his kingdom as he tests his descendants' loyalties.

The talent of Gareth Hinds is clearly evident in this graphic-style depiction of KING LEAR. The plot comes through loud and clear as each drawing captures both characters and emotion that words alone on the page often miss. Readers who find Shakespeare a difficult read might want to give this creative presentation a try.

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.
