Lear by Edward Bond( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this play of shattering power, an authoritarian monarch is overthrown by his daughters who, in turn, find the possession of power to be fatally evil. "I have all the power and yet I am a slave." In a popular insurrection, a peasant woman takes power and becomes even more cruel. As the play ends, another insurrection is in preparation and it's clear that the brutal cycle will endlessly repeat itself."--Publisher's description

Review "[Bontemps's] most distinctive works are ringing affirmations of the human passion for freedom and the desire for social justice inherent in us all. Arnold Rampersad called him the conscience of his era and it could be fairly added that his tendency to fuse history and imagination represents his personal legacy to a collective memory."--Charles L. James, The Oxford Companion to African American Literature (on the life and work of Arna Bontemps, editor of American Negro Poetry)

"What is it that we do when we enjoy a text? What is the pleasure of reading?

Like filings which gather to form a figure in a magnetic field, the parts and pieces here do come together, determined to affirm the pleasure we must take in our reading as against the indifference of (mere) knowledge."--Richard Howard
