Downton Abbey( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Downton Abbey--a sprawling Edwardian mansion and park nestled in the lush North Yorkshire countryside--needs an heir. A tragedy at sea has claimed the life of the presumed heir, and Lord Grantham is faced with the possibility that the house he's loved his whole life might one day belong to a distant cousin he's never met. Before he can worry about that, he must deal with his scandalous daughter, Lady Mary, who many believe to be the rightful heir to Downton. Even the staff have opinions: while many are devoted to the family, there are others whose selfishness and scheming do more than disrupt the well-oiled workings of the estate. As hundreds of years of British aristocratic privilege are battered by the tides of social upheaval and technical progress, as World War I looms, what does fate have in store for Downton? How will the troubles of its family--above and below stairs--be resolved? Or will life be altered so dramatically that its master no longer matters?

King Lear by William Shakespeare( Visual )

24 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 1,187 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
