This guide argues that King Lear's elemental power springs from its language, which is at once simple, relentless, and riddling, and from its full-blown double plot that multiplies unbearably both the follies and the pain of its protagonists. It also explores recent critical approaches to the play and its theatre history. The Language and Writing series offers a new type of study aid which combines lively critical insight with practical guidance on the critical and writing skills students need to develop in order to engage fully with Shakespeare's texts. The books' core focus is on language: both understanding and enjoying Shakespeare's rich and complex dramatic language, and the student's own critical language and how she or he can improve and develop this to become a critical writer.
