Fall 2015 Workshops

 All Things Lear Nov 13—14

All Things Lear

King Learis one of the longest of Shakespeare’s plays, and it is one of the most intricate and compelling. It was not a favorite with the Elizabethan audience, and its harsh cynicism and soul-wrenching has been described as too emotionally draining for audiences of later times as well. But it can be truly said of this play that that it has found its audience in our times. And it is remarkable in its appeal to our troubled struggles toward human equality and social justice. If it is true that clothes make the man (or woman), is it equally true that judicial robes and grandiose titles give dignity to our lives? Does the child of an important father deserve more respect than that of a beggar? These and other questions will be explored and discussed. Participants are asked to read (or re-read) the play in preparation for the class. The recommended text is from the Pelican Series King Lear, edited by Stephen Orgef (ISBN 978-14-071490-6) It’s available at most bookstores or on the internet for about $8.00
