5.0 out of 5 stars Good resource 12 Mar 2004
By Bethanie Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Good resource for the advanced student. This is full of excellent essays about Lear. However, the basic student might find them over-the-top and hard to read. Students interested in Shakespeare for major purposes will find that this is a great reference to keep on hand.
