King Lear by William Shakespeare( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Let's face it - there aren't many happy moments in King Lear. In fact, it may be the most bleak of all Shakespeare's plays, exemplifying both current and classical notions of tragedy. This program presents an enactment of Act IV, Scene 7, among the play's more lyrical and less ominous passages. A group of young British actors rehearses and performs a splendid rendition of the king's reunion with his daughter Cordelia. As a brief discussion afterwards suggests, the scene is imbued with modern ambiguities even as it reminds viewers of the fateful impact of Lear's earlier decisions
