    " 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. "

    " 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. "

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

    " 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. "

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.
