Transcript of King Lear by William Shakespeare

by William Shakespeare The Tragedy of King Lear Shakespeare's Bio Little is actually known
about Shakespeare's life.
All that is truly known is
that his artistry was shaped
over 20 years of his life. http://www.biography.com/people/william-shakespeare-9480323 Link Shakespeare wrote King Lear
in 1608 and it was also performed
for the first time in that same year http://www.william-shakespeare.info/shakespeare-play-king-lear.htm Link The play has been adapted by many
but the one that sticks out the most for
me is the rendition done Kalamazoo's
Civic Parish Theatre Pictures Courtesy of the Kalamazoo
Gazette (right) and mlive.com (bottom) About the Play Adaptations of the Play Personal Thoughts The almighty lear! I honestly don't understand
how one person can be so foolish
as to be blinded by flattery rather
than look at the truth! Ugh, I wish
I could take the shutters off of the
King's eyes! Open Mouth, Heave up heart! Unhappy that I am, I cannot heave
My heart into my mouth.
You know, even if it would've gotten
her a kingdom and a husband, I'm
glad for Cordelia for sticking to her morals! Smart girl! So, farewell. Though I once felt sympathetic
to Edmund for not getting any share
of his father's estate, I feel nothing but
malice towards the boy for trying to
get Edgar killed. Hopefully soon he
will get what's coming to him! Once something is truly gone. Cordelia, darling, you aren't going
to recover your father's sanity. He is
far gone. I just can't help but feel sorry
for her useless efforts. The clock has run out. Even though I eexpected nothing else
from Shakespeare, I still wished this
story would have ended a different
way. I guess that's why they call it
a tragedy, huh? Fathers and Their Children
