William Shakespeare (1564-1616) is acknowledged as the greatest dramatist of all time. He excels in plot, poetry and wit, and his talent encompasses the great tragedies of Hamlet, King Lear, Othello and Macbeth as well as the moving history plays and the comedies such as A Midsummer Nights Dream, The Taming of the Shrew and As You Like It with their magical combination of humour, ribaldry and tenderness. This volume is a reprint of the Shakespeare Head Press edition, and it presents all the plays in chronological order in which they were written. It also includes Shakespeares Sonnets, as well as his longer poems Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece.
One of the later plays, King Lear is such a powerful depiction of suffering and redemption it is now thought by many to be Shakespeares greatest creation. When King Lear abdicates his throne and divides his kingdom between his three daughters, he offends both the law of family and the law of kingship. Spiritually blind and on the brink of madness, he begins to recognize the faults that lie within his soul and, as the drama reaches its cathartic conclusion, to make amends for them. The text of this edition is edited by G.B.Harrison and contains notes, a glossary and an introduction. Издание полностью на английском языке.
King Lear, growing old and too tired to reign, decides to divide his realm amongst his three daughters, leaving the largest share to the one who loves him the most. His two eldest daughters, Goneril and Regan, foolish and deceitful children, are rewarded for their insincere flattery. His youngest daughter, Cordelia, however, speaks honestly and truthfully, which enrages the old king. He disinherits Cordelia, and then drives himself to madness, left to wander the heath with only his Fool, his servant Caius, and the madman Tom OBedlam for company. Once reunited with Cordelia, Lear is too late repents his rashness, and must face the tragic consequences of his choices.
