King Lear (1 of 2)

Publication Date: May 24, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century

Yep, it's King Lear, 'cause why the hell not. It actually is next in the Norton. I'd almost forgotten, since I haven't opened that brick in a couple months - I was using a different book for my Twelfth Night reading. In any event, I'll be skimming this one, since I'm sorta burnt out on the Bard. After these few Lear strips, we'll then leave Big Willy behind us and venture boldly forth into literature I can read without footnotes.

Author: William Shakespeare • Year: c. 1605 • Info: Wikipedia
