Foolish and bad-tempered, King Lear divides the kingdom between his two wicked daughters, disowns his honest youngest daughter and banishes his friends.

As the kingdom falls apart and Lear's humiliation turns him mad, will he finally realise what he has done?

With Notes on Shakespeare and the Globe Theatre and Chaos and Old Age in King Lear.

The tales have been retold using accessible language and with the help of Tony Ross's engaging black-and-white illustrations, each play is vividly brought to life allowing these culturally enriching stories to be shared with as wide an audience as possible.
