Excerpt from King Lear: A Tragedy in Five Acts
As warms my breast, if 'such I find his passion, icart as grateful to his truth shall be, 1 A cold Cordelia prove as kind as he.
Fly, and be safe some villain has incensed Our father against your life.

Review Text

  • By R A FIELD on 6 April 2014

    These are great books. To have original text on one side and modern text on the other is brilliant. Really helpful for my EAL students (and me) and all pupils in the class get an understanding of shakespeare. Highly recommended.

  • By Mark on 28 March 2014

    As a student studying this text at A-level this has been indispensable. The modern English translation it contains on the facing page has been very helpful. A must for any student studying this text.

  • By Carmel Mulvey Gill on 16 October 2014

    It is an invaluable resource for me. I don't know how I ever did without it.

  • By Anna May on 6 December 2015

    Cannot recommend this highly enough for students of KING LEAR, particularly for those who find the language of Shakespeare challenging/offputting. Eases the burden of understanding plot, character motivation, important speeches. I always recommend this to students.An excellent resource.

    as described. Speedy service

  • By mitfie on 10 September 2016

    great for anybody who needs help with the Elizabethan English - puts modern English and Elizabethan text side by side.
