Manga Shakespeare: King Lear

"Which of you doth love us most?" The story of King Lear, the old chieftain who decides to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, begins like a fairy tale – and ends as the most terrifying tragedy ever written. This original manga recreation of Shakespeare's apocalyptic play vividly transfers the action to the violently disputed colonial frontiers of 18th-century America, where it is the last of the Mohicans who is bound upon a wheel of fire...   King Lear is part of Manga Shakespeare, a series of graphic novel adaptations of William Shakespeare's plays. Drawing inspiration from Japan and using Shakespeare's original texts, this series – adapted by Richard Appignanesi and illustrated by leading manga artists – brings to life the great Bard's words for students, Shakespeare enthusiasts and manga fans.
