King Lear by William Shakespeare( Visual )

13 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dramatization of William Shakespeare's play, King Lear, in which tragedy occurs when an old king divides his kingdom between his two daughters. King Lear is generally held to be Shakespeare's greatest tragedy and it is certainly his most embittered. Written as Shakespeare himself was approaching the end of his career as a playwright, King Lear is a story of misplaced trust, of filial ingratitude, of envy and lust for power. But, most of all, it is permeated with a sense of the meaninglessness of any human endeavour in the face of divine indifference "As flies to wanton boys are we to gods; They kill us for their sport." Unlike the other tragedies, there is little sense of the ultimate triumph of good over evil at the end of the play

In the 19th century, the major European powers had gone to great lengths to maintain a balance of power throughout Europe, resulting by 1900 in a complex network of political and military alliances throughout the continent. Beginning in 1815, the Holy Alliance between Prussia, Russia, and Austria formalized what had been a strictly familial support network. The House of Habsburg, the House of Hohenzollern, and the House of Romanov had long intermarried, resulting in an incredibly tangled web of relationships, a number of which led back to Queen Victoria of England. These three families influenced the political landscape of Europe, and their personal struggles, tragedies and decisions within these relationships affected Europe to a greater degree than they ever imagined. This miniseries focuses on the leading personalities of these three privileged families, and how they influenced the events that led to WWI
