King Lear divides his kingdom between his two duplicitous daughters, banishing the loving Cordelia and the steadfast Kent. The King's acts of folly launch a hugely moving search for dignity, self-knowledge and wisdom on the grandest of scales. Three 90-minute cassettes.

The is the first fully annotated critical edition of King Lear to appear for forty years. Unlike previous editions, this one does not present a conflation of the Quarto and the Folio, but offers the latter as the authoritative text.From the Publisher:
A king foolishly divides his kingdom between his scheming two oldest daughters and estranges himself from the daughter who loves him. So begins this profoundly moving and disturbing tragedy that, perhaps more than any other work in literature, challenges the notion of a coherent and just universe. The king and others pay dearly for their shortcomings--as madness, murder, and the anguish of insight and forgiveness that arrive too late combine to make this an all-embracing tragedy of evil and suffering.
