it was amazing

I had never read this play before the afore-mentioned Shakespeare course and I was absolutely blown away by it. Hamlet remains my favorite Shakespeare play (and, basically, favorite play ever) but King Lear is right behind it. Again, this was helped by seeing a great production in London (at the Young Vic). Still, the play itself is so beautiful and tragic. I love Cordelia’s speech and character, and Lear himself is so tragically flawed.
