4 editions published between 1958 and 1963 in English and held by 304 libraries worldwide
Drama, o němž byly kritikou vyslovovány nejprotichůdnější názory, zpracovává národní pověst o Learovi a jeho třech dcerách, která, podobně jako naše známá pohádka "Sůl nad zlato", vyslovuje starou lidovou moudrost, že prostá, aleupřímně míněná slova jsou nad všechno falešné lichocení a pochlebování. Autor zachoval hlavní rysy své předlohy, její pohádkovou naivitu, přesto však dovedl vtisknout svým postavám typické rysy svých současníků, takže dramavystihuje a zevšeobecňuje základní životní procesy a sociální konflikty Anglie na poč. 17. stol
