King Lear

William Shakespeare (Author), George Kirkpatrick Hunter (Editor), Kiernan Ryan (Author of introduction, etc.)
The ageing King Lear, tired of office, decides to split his kingdom between his three daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia; but the decision to allot their share based on the love they express for him proves to be a terrible mistake.
