Description - King Lear in Brooklyn by Michael Pennington

An original approach to Shakespeare's King Lear: Michael Pennington takes us on a fascinating journey through the play from the point of view of Lear himself and others. Although Michael also writes about his own New York acting experience in 2014, the major part of the book comprises chapters devoted to commentary on the play, its thoughts, motives and its themes in Lear's own words, and other chapters equally devoted to similar commentary from other characters in the play.
