This reissed edition of Longman Annotated Texts King Lear includes comprehensive notes, annotations and an introduction, all designed to be of use to undergraduates and interested readers. King Lear is one of Shakespeare's most widely studied tragedies. However, since the late 1970s textual scholars, critics and editors have argued that there is no single 'King Lear' text. Anyone studying the play needs to be aware of two different texts, one based on the quarto of 1608, The History of King Lear, and a revised version published in the first folio of 1623, The Tragedy of King Lear. This edition offers a fully annotated, modern spelling version of the texts set side by side, identifying and elucidating the major discrepancies between the two. It presents some possible reasons for the differences between the two texts, which themselves shed light on a number of issues relating to literary transmission in the Renaissance and give an insight into the nature of performance and censorship.

King Lear - Sympathielenkung und Schuldfrage in Shakespeares King Lear

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universitat Mannheim, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die folgende Hausarbeit befasst sich mit der Schuldfrage und die dazugehorige Analyse der Sympathielenkung in Shakespeares Drama King Lear. Der Aufsatz grenzt stark Figuren ein, sodass nur der Vater bzw. Konig Lear und die drei Tochter jeweils analysiert werden. Der Leser wird schnell merken, dass er mit der Zeit eine gewisse Sympathie zu Konig Lear und seiner jungsten Tochter Cordelia entwickelt und eine Antipathie zu den anderen Tochtern Goneril und Regan. Bemerkenswert ist aber, dass sowohl Lear als auch Cordelia in ihren Verhaltensweisen und Einschatzungen nicht ganz ordnungsgemass agieren. Die Entscheidungen sind sehr effektiv, wirkungsvoll und gegen die Vorbestimmungen des jeweiligen Zeitalters. Obwohl Regan und Goneril eigentlich nach den Werten und Normen ihrer Zeit handeln, werden sie hauptsachlich fur schuldig erklart und es besteht sozusagen eine Antipathie gegen sie. Die vorliegende Hausarbeit soll genau an dieser Stelle eingreifen und zeigen, dass sowohl Lear und Cordelia als auch Regan und Goneril in gewisser Weise schuldig am dramatischen Geschehen sind und dass eine intendierte Sympathielenkung zu Lear und Cordelia nachzuweisen ist. Demzufolge ist der Einstieg mit einem Theorieteil der Sympathielenkung nach Manfred Pfister festgelegt. Anschliessend folgt die Textanalyse. Der Analyseteil ist wiederum in drei Kategorien unterteilt: Erstens, Konig Lear, zweitens Cordelia und drittens die anderen beiden Tochter Regan und Goneril. Bei Lear wird sein verantwortliches bzw. unverantwortliches Handeln naher unter die Lupe genommen. Deswegen werden die Szenen des Liebestests und die Teilung des Landes analysierend pointiert. Danach erfolgt die Analyse der Einsamkeit Lears und abschliessend sein Schuldanteil. Im zweiten Teil wird eine der Zentralfiguren, Cordelia, analysiert. Ist sie eine Gefahr? Welche Funktionen ubernimmt sie? Wi

Shakespeare's King Lear with The Tempest

The Discovery of Nature and the Recovery of Classical Natural Right

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 317

Although he is considered to be the world's greatest dramatist, Shakespeare seems to have escaped the detection of thinkers on politics and the philosophic tradition of thought on man. Shakespeare's 'King Lear' with 'The Tempest' is Mark McDonald's inquiry into the political philosophy of William Shakespeare through a reading of King Lear with reference to The Tempest. McDonald follows an argument connecting King Lear to the question of natural right and to changes in the orders of the western world at the beginnings of modernity.
