Munqith Gharib I like all Shakespeare’s bad-boys. Why does this masterpiece–yes, a true masterpiece–continue to collect dust on library shelves? I’m almost finished not reading but studying its verbal tapestry, so intricately woven with the emotions of its characters. The play holds together, where no thread can be pulled from it. King Lear is Shakespeare’s best play. Perhaps this work is neglected, because it requires thinking on the reader’s part.

It is simply easier to read of insipid love triangles while letting, yes masterpieces, gather dust. See all 9 questions about Kralj Lear….
Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Krlaj read Lear many times, and, although I didn’t learn much about the play this reading, I did learn a little about myself. I have always loved the play, but in the past I found its injustice and evil nigh overpowering, its victims pathetically guiltless, its perspective verging on the nihilistic.
Now, though, I see goodness and grace everywhere: The bad guys have their moments too: Goodness seems to triumph here even in the midst of loss, and I no longer feel the evil to be overwhelming: I merely bow my head in thanksgiving for goodness and tremble in reverence before the mystery of life.

View all 5 comments. Everybody with no exception. My first encounter with Shakespeare has totally swept me off my feet. As much as I had heard of the indisputable grandeur of the most famous playwright of all times I never expected to be so immersed in the swirling undercurrents of the incongruities of human nature that are so vividly portrayed in this tragedy.
Always elusive and prone to countless interpretations, Shakespeare remains inscrutable and daunts the present reader with questions of yesteryear about the meaning of life. A surrealistic bargain that includes the old King Lear exchanging land for the love declarations of his three daughters in the opening scene triggers a chain of events that combine a peculiar mix of humorous absurdity, demented remorse and virulent wrath that escalates to a tragic climax.
Two fathers in the autumn of their lives misjudge their siblings, act impulsively and end up paying dearly for their pride.
One loses his sight, the other his sanity, but both preserve faithful servants that guide them through the wilderness of the desolate heath where the sky dissolves into tears under a raging storm. Lush with religious references, Greek mythology and several doses of misogynistic diatribe, the setting and aim of the story persists in being ambiguous, although the critics seem to agree on Pre-Christian Britain there is doubt regarding its moral purpose.
But whether Shakespeare confirmed or subverted the idea of a providential order is secondary to me. The power of this play relays in kkralj ongoing paradoxes that coexist in all the characters as it does in human nature, for they all display an irrepressible tendency for extreme cruelty, envy and greed that is counterbalanced with a great capacity for forgiveness, repentance and love.
How can divine justice fit the randomness of an untamed nature that punishes the ktalj without apparent purpose? They kill us for their sport.
Kralj Lear – Wikipedija
Let me wipe it first; it smells of mortality. Love is what keeps us going. Without love, children would be orphans, lovers sterile and Kings, beggars. From Harold Bloom’s essay: Outrageously hyperbolical, insanely eloquent, Lear nevertheless always demands more love than can be given and so he scarcely can speak without crossing the realms of the unsayable.

I have no way and therefore want no eyes I stumbled when I saw. Full oft ’tis seen our means secure us, and our mere defects prove our commodities. We two alone will sing like birds i’ the cage: When thou dost ask me blessing, I’ll kneel down, And ask of thee forgiveness: A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson, glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch: Poor naked wretches, whereso’er you are, That bide the pelting of this pitiless storm, How shall your houseless heads and unfed sides, Your loop’d and window’d raggedness, defend you From seasons such as these?
O, I have ta’en Too little care of this! Take physic, pomp; Expose thyself to feel what wretches feel, That thou mayst shake the superflux to them, And show the heavens more just.

There is something soothing in the knowledge that he wrote all those unforgettable lines over years ago and they still make so much sense – sometimes more sense than our most recent literary production. I know that I am in some kind of identity crisis when King Lear comes to my mind again, and I open the highly impractical “Collected Works of Shakespeare” and try to find Lear without completely bre In times of change, stress or general uneasiness, I find myself repeatedly quoting Shakespeare.
I know that I am in some kind of identity crisis when King Lear comes to my mind again, and I open the highly impractical “Collected Works of Shakespeare” and try to find Lear without completely breaking the suffering spine. It does not necessarily make me forget my everyday worries, for Shakespeare is no escapism writer.
Rather, I feel that my concerns and thoughts are given a wider, noble context, as they can be related to that master of words, plots, characters, everything human. Shakespeare does not give me answers, but he gives my questions validity. And they might be true. But does that really excuse the sinning?
I love the ambiguous world of Shakespeare, and King Lear has it all. Action, drama, feelings in the wrong and right places, politics, and common sense in unexpected situations.
William Shakespeare: Kralj Lear
The long diatribe on man’s blaming the stars for his viciousness is one of my favourites. King Lear is as good as Shakespeare can be!

Goneril and Regan, shower the gullible king with untrue platitudes of endearment, lovely Cordelia, the youngest, unmarried but has many suitors, says she loves her father like a daughter shouldbut the puzzled, quite angry manmisconstruing these mild remarks, and he, Lear, banishes his child, no land either, for the former favorite, but not before giving Cordeliato the sympathetic king of France, as his bride, he admires her nobility The Earl of Kent protests, vehemently, the sovereign’s biggest supporter and he too is told to leave Britain at once, or be executed, the poor, oblivious man, has given away all power and benefits to his unworthy children Kent risks his life by staying in England, disguising himself in order to help the feeble friend, Lear, becoming his loyal servant, Caius, protecting the confused, mad king, from his evil, rival daughters, many insults he Lear, regrets his unwise gifts to them.
The very cold, schemingambitious bastard son, Edmund, the term fits more than one way of the too trusting nobleman, the Earl of Gloucester, feels he deserves all the glory, wealth and titles, that his older brother, the virtuous, but naive Edgar, who is continually kind to the half-brother, will inherit, someday, nothing is beneath him, lies and deceit, get more elaborate, making love to Goneril and Regan, maneuvering forward to accomplish his desires and the contemptible goals, he wants In real life there are no happy endings, people live, do good things or bad, and then die, the next generation repeats this eternal pattern, until the final rays of the Sun, shine for the last time, and the darkness swallows the world.
This play by Shakespeare, is one of the finest ever written, it shows why the author was and is still the greatest writer to put down his ideas on paper. View all 11 comments. I enjoyed the play and then watched a few film versions.
My review will cover both the book and the film I saw — with a bit of sarcasm and humor just to be different than all the other ones!
LOL Lear is an absolutely ridiculous character who belongs in the krqlj bin in my opinion. He has lost all control over his life, his family, and his kingdom. He is foolish, blind, and stubborn.
