King Lear by William Shakespeare( Visual )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dramatization of William Shakespeare's play, King Lear, in which tragedy occurs when an old king divides his kingdom between his two daughters. King Lear is generally held to be Shakespeare's greatest tragedy and it is certainly his most embittered. Written as Shakespeare himself was approaching the end of his career as a playwright, King Lear is a story of misplaced trust, of filial ingratitude, of envy and lust for power. But, most of all, it is permeated with a sense of the meaninglessness of any human endeavour in the face of divine indifference "As flies to wanton boys are we to gods; They kill us for their sport." Unlike the other tragedies, there is little sense of the ultimate triumph of good over evil at the end of the play
