    schema:description "Shakespeare's King Lear challenges us with the magnitude, intensity, and sheer duration of the pain that it represents. Its figures harden their hearts, engage in violence, or try to alleviate the suffering of others. Lear himself rages until his sanity cracks. What, then, keeps bringing us back to King Lear' For all the force of its language, King Lear is almost equally powerful when translated, suggesting that it is the story, in large part, that draws us to the play. The play tells us about families struggling between greed and cruelty, on the one hand, and support and consolation, on the other. Emotions are extreme, magnified to gigantic proportions. We also see old age portrayed in all its vulnerability, pride, and, perhaps, wisdom'one reason this most devastating of Shakespeare's tragedies is also perhaps his most moving. The authoritative edition of King Lear from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, is now available as an eBook. Features include: ' The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference ' Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation ' Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play ' Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play ' Scene-by-scene plot summaries ' A key to famous lines and phrases ' An introduction to reading Shakespeare's language ' Illustrations from the Folger Shakespeare Library's vast holdings of rare books ' An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play."@en ;
