King Lear

By William Shakespeare Edited by Nick de Somogyi

Paperback £12.99£10.39

The Shakespeare Folios series - offering the absolute authenticity of the First Folio in a totally accessible form.

'A quite wonderful idea... So blindingly obvious, I can't understand why nobody had thought of it before. I will certainly use the texts myself' - Peter Hall

This edition accurately reproduces the text of the Shakespeare First Folio (1623), but in modern type. At a stroke the dust of ages is blown away and what Shakespeare actually intended is revealed to modern readers.

Now Shakespeareans everywhere - students, actors, directors - can see for themselves what the Folio really says.

As a further aid to understanding, on each opposing page the same text appears in a fully modernised version - a useful safety net whenever the Folio becomes problematic.

Each volume also contains:
- an introduction to the particular play
- textual notes
- an appendix giving variant versions from the Quarto where appropriate
- a facsimile page from the First Folio
