Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A taut adaptation of Shakespeares masterwork by Gareth Hinds — the standard-bearer of graphic-novel retellings of literary classics.

In a graceful adaptation, Gareth Hinds transforms Shakespeares 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 bards own language, Gareth Hindss inventive format opens the experience of KING LEAR to students and fans of graphic literature.

Synopsis:

In a graceful adaptation, Hinds transforms Shakespeare's timeless tale of pride and defiance, loyalty and ambition, betrayal and revenge into a graphic novel, packing it with visual drama and providing accessible notes. Young adult.
