Description
The Signet Classics edition of one of William Shakespeare's greatest tragedies.

This revised Signet Classics edition includes unique features such as: * An overview of Shakespeare's life, world, and theater * A special introduction to the play by the editor, Russell Fraser * Selections from Raphael Holinshed's Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland , Sir Philip Sidney's Arcadia , and The True Chronicle History of King Lear , the sources from which Shakespeare derived King Lear * Dramatic criticism from Samuel Johnson, A. C. Bradley, John Russell Brown, and others * A comprehensive stage and screen history of notable actors, directors, and productions * Text, notes, and commentaries printed in the clearest, most readable text * And more...
