Description

Graphic Shakespeare brings all of the action to vivid life while retaining every word of the original play. Shakespeare has been called the greatest writer in the English language-but his language and settings can seem remote and forbidding. Welcome to Black Dog's Graphic Shakespeare Library, where each play comes to life in a new way, panel after illustrated panel.

King Lear is a story of kingship, honor, and bloody revenge. King Lear is illustrated in full color by Ian Pollack and includes a synopsis of the play, and an illustrated character list. It's a marvelous way to experience Shakespeare for the first time-or the tenth-and is sure to be attractive to students and theatre fans alike.
