King Lear - family dysfunction and power struggles at their finest. I like comic books, but I'm skeptical of the "Illustrated Classics" approach.
So I was a bit leery buying this pun unintended, but not bad. The art is lovely and has a timeless, surreal quality. The stylizations only enhance it. Especially watch the Fool: This artist knows what he's doing and is worth watching. As for the writer: But this Shakespeare guy, I think he's got potential. I mean, the slant rhyme and Jedi syntax bugs me sometimes, but otherwise, he has skills worthy of his art. The History of King Lear: Just a quick word about the Kindle version: The formatting makes it essentially impossible to follow the footnotes -- frequently the relevant footnote is on a different page from the corresponding line.
A shame, too, really, because overall this is a great edition. Stanley Wells' introduction to the play is a model for such introductions. It is clear, free of unexplained critical jargon, and makes several compelling arguments for the decision to base this edition on the first quarto with a few corrections. Anyone who claims in a product review that a particular edition is not ideal is missing the point.
There will never be a perfect edition of any Shakespeare play.
Get all the Ardens, all the Oxfords, and a few extras of particular plays you're most interested in, and enjoy them all! Only 12 left in stock more on the way. King Lear has never been my favorite Shakespeare play. It's long and I find it hard to overlook Lear's initial foolishness to view him as a tragic hero. Still, it's required reading in my school - at the ninth grade!!!!! So you can imagine the trouble my college-prep ninth-graders had every year until I discovered these Side-by-Sides.
Recommended Shakespeare Editions: Arden, Oxford, and Cambridge
Students have the original text because I do believe it is important for them to deal with Shakespeare's poetry, his use of similes, etc. I know that before I used the King Lear side-by-side this year, my students read only enough of the play to bluff their way through class discussion and to pass the test. But this year I really think they got into it, the intricate characters, the sense of betrayal and loss. I am really glad I got this book!
Books by A.C. Bradley (Author of Shakespearean Tragedy)
I am a theater major and have had to take many Shakespeare courses. This last one we studied Macbeth, Othello, and King Lear. I was so glad to read this book and get some great insights that I could use in class discussion and allowed me to look at the plays I'd read so many times in a new light.
If you are a fan of Shakespeare and familiar with this shows, I highly suggest reading this!
