Literary Pick (****)

No Fear Shakespeare
-Sparknotes














I can't believe it's taken me this long to read my first Shakespeare play. I enjoyed the story of King Lear so much! more than I ever thought I would. I didn't expect parts to be so comical. I was under the impression King Lear was a totally solemn story, but instead was rather dramatically amusing. I do have to admit I opted  for the "plain English" version of this edition because I feel that since it's my first time reading Shakespeare, it's much more important to first understand what the play is about before reading the work in it's original text.
