King Lear Summary

One of William Shakespeare's towering achievements, King Lear is a work of exceptional mastery, a stark take that is both intimate and vast. An old and vain King unwisely divides his Kingdom between his two fawning older daughters and banishes his third daughter, who truly loves him, but speaks more modestly.
