King Lear

Shakespeare’s King Lear ranks with Sophocles’ Oedipus as a tragic hero destroyed by his own good intentions. From the moment when Lear unfolds his darker purpose, we are drawn into an ineluctable chain of events that leads through betrayal, deceit, destructive family conflict, reconciliation, despair, and death. Considered by many to be the most grueling of Shakespeare’s tragedies – Samuel Johnson found the death of Cordelia too heartbreaking to contemplate – this play represents the work of a master dramatist at the height of his powers.
