Offering an ongoing theatrical commentary alongside the play of King Lear , this book is intended to help the reader visualize the stage life of the play and give an insight into Shakespeare in his true element. The play text is presented on one page, while the facing page is divided into two columns. One column is a glossary of obscure words and phrases and the other informs the reader what has been done in famous productions and how the play works in performance. Each volume of this series contains an introduction to the play and an appendix showing sources for the play.
