Summary
  • "Grace Ioppolo has prepared this Norton Critical Edition of Shakespeare's most important play from the 1623 First Folio text (with the most significant variants from the 1608 Quarto I interpolated). The edition provides a full discussion, in A Note on the Text and the comprehensive Textual Variants and Notes, of the textual transmission of the play, now the scholarly focus of discussions of Shakespeare as a reviser of his own work. A critical introduction, addressing King Lear's origins, its legacy, and its place in literature, theatre, and popular culture, makes clear that King Lear is now the central play of Shakespeare's canon for literary and theatrical audiences alike." "The "Sources" section helps readers navigate King Lear's rich history. Nine essential primary sources are reprinted, from which Shakespeare borrowed significantly in creating his play, along with two additional probably sources."
  • "The "Criticism" section presents thirteen major interpretations of King Lear written since the eighteenth century as well as three adaptations and responses to it. A selected bibliography is also included."--BOOK JACKET
