About This Book
King Lear is generally regarded as one of William Shakespeare's greatest
tragedies. It is believed to have been written in 1605 and is based on the
legend of Leir, a king of pre-Roman Britain. His story had already been told in
chronicles, poems and sermons, as well as on the stage, when Shakespeare
undertook the task of retelling it.
After the Restoration, the play was often modified by theatre practitioners who disliked its nihilistic flavour, but, since World War II, it has come to be regarded as one of Shakespeare's greatest achievements. The part of King Lear has been played by many great actors, but is generally considered a role to be taken on only by those who have reached an advanced age.
