King Lear is one of Shakespeare's most well known and powerfully moving tragedies.
'By far the best edition of King Lear - in respect of both textual and other matters - that we now have.' John Lyon, English Language Notes
'This volume is a treasure trove of precise information and stimulating comments on practically every aspect of the Lear universe. I know of no other edition which I would recommend with such confidence: to students, professional colleagues and also the 'educated public'.' Dieter Mehl, Shakespeare Jahrbuch, vol 134
