In their lectures on King Lear, the eight contributors to this volume fulfill Shakespeare's rigorous injunction to Speak what we feel" about the playwright's amplest tragedy. Representing distinctive but complementary points of view, they cover theatrical history, verbal style, acting and actors, the playwright in his cultural context and in the light of enduring human concerns, and the Shakespearean view of history, tragedy, and psychology. Originally published in 1982. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
