A taut adaptation of Shakespeare's masterwork by Gareth Hinds -- the standard-bearer of graphic-novel retellings of literary classics. In a graceful adaptation, Gareth Hinds transforms Shakespeare's timeless tale of pride and defiance, loyalty and ambition, betrayal and revenge into graphic-novel format, packing it with visual drama and providing accessible notes. This artful edition -- like an extraordinary stage performance -- offers a striking new perspective on one of the most powerful and beloved tragedies in the English language. Incorporating excerpts from the bard's own language, Gareth Hinds's inventive format opens the experience of King Lear to students and fans of graphic literature.

display_description "When an old and jaded king sets out to divide his realm among his three daughters, demanding proof of their devotion in words, he instead divides his family. So begins a bitter struggle that eats away at the kingdom-- and the old man's sanity-- in this timeless tale of pride and defiance" -- from dust jacket flap.
