Manga Shakespeare: King Lear

Manga Shakespeare
Vol. : King Lear
(1 rating)


"Which of you doth love us most?" The story of King Lear, the old chieftain who decides to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, begins like a fairy tale – and ends as the most terrifying tragedy ever written. This original manga recreation of Shakespeare's apocalyptic play vividly transfers the action to the violently disputed colonial frontiers of 18th-century America, where it is the last of the Mohicans who is bound upon a wheel of fire...   King Lear is part of Manga Shakespeare, a series of graphic novel adaptations of William Shakespeare's plays. Drawing inspiration from Japan and using Shakespeare's original texts, this series – adapted by Richard Appignanesi and illustrated by leading manga artists – brings to life the great Bard's words for students, Shakespeare enthusiasts and manga fans.
