Easily the best paperback Lear available,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Oxford Shakespeare: The History of King Lear (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
This is the best single-volume edition available of the most moving play ever written. Wells' introduction is wise, tactful, accessible and illuminating; the notes are helpful and unintrusive; and the text is well-presented and sensibly taken from the first, Quarto edition of the play. Certainly the edition to use if you're thinking about staging the play, as the Globe have already realized. A stunning feat of imaginative, empathetic scholarship.
