King Lear (facs. 1st Folio 1623)
Shakespeare’s King Lear may be his greatest tragedy. It presents a dark picture of aging, of an uncaring universe, and the dangers of an unstable king struggling to understand his own power. This is a facsimile edition of the play from the First Folio edition of 1623.
