• A Shakespeare Story- King Lear

Foolish and bad-tempered, King Lear divides the kingdom between his two wicked daughters, disowns his honest youngest daughter and banishes his friends. As the kingdom falls apart and Lear's humiliation turns him mad, will he finally realise what he has done?

Andrew Matthews's vibrant and accessible re-telling, coupled with expressive and funny illustrations by Tony Ross, provide an introduction to this important part of English cultural heritage in the most enjoyable way.

Perfect for a beginner in English Literature or cultural studies. The stories come originally from the highly successful gift collection The Orchard Book of Shakespeare Stories. Also included are useful notes on the theme of patiotism in the story and a background to the Globe theatre.
