Category Description for King Lear (Shakespeare):

Typical of Shakespearean tragedy, this play is full of disappointment, injustice, and cruelty. Perhaps one of Shakespeare's darkest plays ever written, the plot involves a monarch who is betrayed by his daughters, robbed of his kingdom, and goes mad from the pressures and disappointments surrounding him. Although certainly devoid of much happiness, this book is nonetheless written with a certain magnificence. The Dover Thrift Edition includes a few definitions beneath the unabridged text and has 118 pgs, pb.
