King Lear - Manga Shakespeare

Publisher: Self Made Hero

Review

The story of Lear, the old chieftain, who divides his kingdom among his three daughters is the most terrifying tragedy ever written.

Shakespeare’s apocalyptic play is vividly transferred to the colonial frontiers of 18th-century America, where it is the last of the Mohicans who is bound upon a wheel of fire...

Part of the popular Manga Shakespeare series of graphic novel adpatations of Shakespeare's plays - perfect for introducing Key Stage 3 students to Shakespeare. Ilya's illustrations match the intensity of the play to bring this tragic classic vividly to life.
