WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

King Lear divides his Kingdom between his daughters according to a declaration of their love for him. His eldest Goneril and Regan exaggerate their affection and inherit. His youngest daughter Cordelia speaks only the truth and is banished. So begins Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear, whose dignity, sanity and finally life are torn from him by a self-seeking younger generation, ambitious for his power.
