About this title


In their lectures on King Lear, the eight contributors to this volume fulfill Shakespeare's rigorous injunction to Speak what we feel" about the playwright's amplest tragedy. Representing distinctive but complementary points of view, they cover theatrical history, verbal style, acting and actors, the playwright in his cultural context and in the light of enduring human concerns, and the Shakespearean view of history, tragedy, and psychology.
