King Lear was too old and tired to reign anymore, so he decided to divide his realm among his daughters: the two eldest daughters flattered him, and they were rewarded properly, but the youngest child, Cordelia, expressed her true feelings towards him, and was disinherited, what ultimately made the King lose his mind.

    "If you're looking for the best books with an alienation theme, King Lear might be an okay solution. It's about a king who was too tired to reign any longer, so he divided his realm amongst his daughters. One of his daughters expressed her true feelings towards him and alienated her from the family.

    "Anybody that is a fan of British or Irish authors should check out King Lear. This play was really entertaining. I usually am not a fan of plays but King Lear kept me entertained from start to finish. It was so good that I took my friend to see it as well. "

    "A classic, though not his best work. One of those where you need to read because it's a classic, but you probably wouldn't read without having to, much like say the Grapes of Wrath. You almost read because it's assigned to you or obligated to read it. When reading though you end up finding out it's a pretty great read. "

    "King Lear is a classic, and I think this was a pretty good response. It is one of his best, for sure, and less cliche than Romeo and Juliet."

    "King Lear is a decent book featuring old people. Although it's a classic, it does drag at times. I;d rather read other Shakespeare works."

    "King Lear is a classic. Shakespeare is a timeless author."

    "King Lear was a really great 17th century setting. It really dove deep in to that era and allowed you to view life in that time. It helped you understand their problems in that time."

    "Shakespeare is always good for a best of list. I haven't read it since high school, but now will have to give it another read."

    "This may be a classic but Shakespeare just has never been that interesting to me. I had to struggle through this and in the end, I would much rather read something more modern."
  • Ralph Harvey

    "Shakespeare's works are timeless classics that everyone should have some exposure to. This is definitely worth reading, even if you are not an English major. There are so many references in popular culture to his works, so you should read it if you want to stay in the know."

    "Our professor assigned us King Lear as part of grade. I don't see what the big deal is. The dude's angry. Big deal. I'm angry too, and no one's writing a book about me."
  • Albert Hopkins

    "This book is a classic for anyone who is interested in Shakespeare. It deals with many topics such as greed, cruelty, and supporting one's family. Emotions run high in this story and I love the fact that this edition includes notes for students reading it for the first time. "

    "King Lear is indeed a classic and a good book, but it is not what I would call a good summer read. Summer is for fun and enjoyment and King Lear is too close to being like school work. I'd save it for the school year and go with something much more light and fun."
