This volume brings together nine essays on King Lear by distinguished scholars, all of which were first published in Shakespeare Survey, the leading journal devoted to Shakespeare studies. A retrospective survey of criticism from 1934 to the present is followed by studies of the play's style and discussion of its background, meaning and theatrical presentation. The volume is illustrated with photographs of post-war productions.
