King Lear by William Shakespeare( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While King Lear has again and again been described as Shakespeare's greatest work-the tragedy in which he exhibits most fully his multitude of literary powers-it is the least read, and for many, the most difficult to analyze. In this program, key scenes are dramatized. Noted Shakespearean experts, Professors Robert Smallwood and Stanley Wells, take on the task of examining Lear's enigmatic character and the often obscure topics and themes that comprise the play. Topics include the passing of time and growing old; reconciliation; insensitivity of the characters; the meaning of tragedy; and trust and betrayal. This program represents an excellent starting point for students attempting to comprehend the essence of King Lear as Shakespeare's most challenging and esoteric work
