Read full description of the books:
El rey Lear, de William Shakespeare, se basa en un cuento popular que aparece incorporado a la historia antigua de Inglaterra desde el siglo XII. Cuentan las crónicas que el viejo Lear quiso conocer el grado de afecto de sus tres hijas para designar sucesora a quien más le quisiera. Dos se deshicieron en halagos y la menos le contestó que le quería como padre y nada más. Le pareció poco al rey, que la castigó. El tiempo vendría a demostrar más tarde que era la única digna del trono que, por fin, tras una guerra con las hermanas, consiguió. Shakespeare amplía la trama e infunde a la historia una visión muy personal. Lo que en definitiva presenta es una experiencia extrema de dolor, locura y destrucción expresada crudamente y sin reservas. Logra así con El rey Lear la tragedia tal vez más intensa y ambiciosa de su teatro y del teatro universal. Frente a las traducciones modernas que combinan los dos textos originales de la obra, la incluida en esta colección, de Ángel-Luis Pujante, catedrático de la Universidad de Murcia, se atiene al texto de 1623, que agiliza la acción sin alterar el espíritu de la tragedia, presentando una edición anotada con gran erudición y sensibilidad literaria.

Read information about the authorWilliam Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. Scholars believe that he died on his fifty-second birthday, coinciding with St George’s Day.
At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.
Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century. Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights. Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare's.
Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century. The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare's genius, and the Victorians hero-worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called "bardolatry". In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.
According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life. Shakespeare's writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589. There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.
