Description

Shakespeare’s King Lear is seeing a number of significant productions and re-imaginings. Study of the play and its sources, contexts, and production histories facilitates exploration of a complex set of pre-texts and after-texts across disciplines, considering shifting theatrical forms, connections between Shakespeare’s plays; the text’s relationships to other early modern writers’ verse works; and the scholarly arguments about the play’s representation of early modern culture and/or Shakespeare’s biography.
