King Lear is one of Shakespeare’s classic tragedies with many memorable lines on the price paid for vanity. King Lear has three daughters: Goneril, Regan, and the youngest, the good Cordelia. The king asks his daughters how much they love him and thrives on excessive empty words of flattery from his two eldest and bristles with anger when plain speaking Cordelia does not wish to participate in such falsity. King Lear banishes her, and thereafter unfolds the tragedy of his own undoing.

About the Author

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.
