King Lear, Hardback Book

King Lear Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library series

Hardback

Description

In Shakespeare's thrilling and hugely influential tragedy, ageing King Lear makes a capricious decision to divide his realm between his three daughters according to the love they express for him.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

This edition is illustrated throughout by Sir John Gilbert, and includes an introduction by Dr Robert Mighall. When the youngest daughter refuses to take part in this charade, she is banished, leaving the king dependent on her manipulative and untrustworthy sisters.

In the scheming and recriminations that follow, not only does the king's own sanity crumble, but the stability of the realm itself is also threatened.
