Publisher Comments:

[Lear] is the most awesome of all the poet's originals. No one else in Shakespeare is so legitimate a representation of supreme authority.

@HiLEARious What, my ungrateful girls are kicking me out? I’ll be cold and homeless. This sucketh. Very unexpected. Am I right?

Seriously. They SAID THEY LOVED ME. I really do not get it. Who lies just because they know it will win them land and power??
