William Shakespeare – The Tragedy of King Lear | Review

Title: The Tragedy of King Lear

Author: William Shakespeare

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 134

Rating: 3.5/5

This is one of Shakespeare’s longer plays, and unfortunately that made it drag a little for me. I think it also suffered because I read it after reading Julius Caesar, which I pretty much loved. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with this book, it just wasn’t Shakespeare’s best, at least in my opinion.

Still, there’s a lot to like here, as well as a bunch of lines and quotes that are famous and which have spread into popular culture. I’m glad that I read it and I’m sure a production would be a lot of fun, but there are other Shakespeare plays that I’d recommend and prioritise.
