King Lear

William Shakespeare

King Lear is, of course, Shakespeare's quintessential play of filial love, betrayal and loyalty, and an aging, doting parent, driven to insanity by rage and regret.

I found it quite an intense read. I liked it very much, but, while I recognize Shakespeare's genius, and the excellence of King Lear, I admit that I can only take Shakespeare in small, infrequent doses.
