Says Lear was the King of England. He most certainly was the king of Britian, that is the whole point of the play. It was written in response to the political situation between Scotland and England, as a caution against division. 'Better together' propaganda, but set in pagan times, so no offence could be taken. It is deplorable that the author of the book does not understand this pivotal point. Must have been written by an English man!
