King Lear (Paperback)

Macaw Books


King Lear is one of the greatest tragedies of the master playwright William Shakespeare. The play is focused around Lear, the aging King of Britain and his three daughters, Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia. When Lear wants to step down from the throne, he decides to divide his kingdom among his three daughters and asks each daughter how much she loves him. Goneril and Regan, greedy for their share, give him flattering answers, while Cordelia remains silent, which enrages Lear and forces him to disown her. The play tells of Lear's fate once he has given up his kingdom and destroyed his relationship with his daughters. This short narrative version of the play has been suitably adapted to help introduce the play to young readers. It can be read by children or read to them by parents who wish to introduce them to the play. It can also be used by teachers as a classroom resource. The easy-to-read narration and comic-style illustrations are sure to captivate children's interest and develop their reading skills.
