King Lear by Peter Brook ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his film of King Lear, Peter Brook employs an approach suggested by Polish critic Jan Kott in his book "Shakespeare Our Contemporary." In Kott's estimation, the play is about the total futility of things. Brook's Lear, set in a barren kingdom frozen in the middle of a winter, is a brave and interesting effort containing this new conception, while rethinking and offering critical commentary on the play. It is interesting precisely because it contrasts so firmly with Shakespeare's universe; by deliberately omitting all faith and hope from Lear's kingdom, it paradoxically helps us to see how much is there
