Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/21/2011

    " This was required reading in my freshman comp class at Bellarmine. This play was included in our literature anthology, "The Experience of Literature" by Lionell Trilling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 5/20/2011

    " I'd give Lear 4.5 stars if I could. Not five, because only books that mean a lot to me personally get five; but this is a gorgeous play, and definitely in my top five of Shakespeare's works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/17/2011

    " Didn't get around to this until my senior year of college. How'd I miss it for 22 years? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 5/15/2011

    " This is an absolutely terrific edition of King Lear. Slowing picking my through the text (taking pains to absorb all the footnotes along the way) proved to be an enormously rewarding experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jbdean | 5/12/2011

    " An assault on age and custom. Touching, but not my favorite of the Bard's tragedies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 5/12/2011

    " I liked reading it but I didn't like reading it for school. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Huma | 5/11/2011

    " I didn't much care for this play. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Giselle | 5/6/2011

    " Read for school.
    It was sad when Cordelia died - but then it's a tragedy, isn't it? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clint | 4/29/2011

    " It is such a pleasure to re-read something and find it to be even better than remembered. I think one must be over 50 to really get this. "

    Rating: 2,5

    I liked it the least from the Shakespeare's play I read so far. Though it is filled with morals I didn't particularly found it interesting.
    In this edition there is a lot of extra materials, some more interesting and helpful than others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 4/27/2011

    " This was a pretty good tragedy. It was enjoyable to read in class and the story kept moving along. "

    " it is a good classic book "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
