A king foolishly divides his kingdom between his scheming two oldest daughters and estranges himself from the daughter who loves him. So begins this profoundly moving and disturbing tragedy that, perhaps more than any other work in literature, challenges the notion of a coherent and just universe. The king and others pay dearly for their shortcomings--­as madness, murder, and the anguish of insight and forgiveness that arrive too late combine to make this an all-­embracing tragedy of evil and suffering.

Each Edition Includes:
• Comprehensive explanatory notes
• Vivid introductions and the most up-­to-­date scholarship
• Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English
• Completely updated, detailed bibliographies and performance histories
• An interpretive essay on film adaptations of the play, along with an extensive filmography
