Discussion of King Lear

Dear Friends,

We had a GREAT discussion of King Lear tonight. To everyone who called in: thanks for all of your wonderful observations and probing questions. To those of you who couldn’t be on the call: I hope you have a chance to listen to and enjoy the “replay.”

Here’s a link to last night’s discussion:

I look forward to our final discussion next on month on Twelfth Night. Unlike the first two plays we’ve read, Twelfth Night is a comedy, but in some ways it’s a very dark comedy, so it will be worth thinking about the relationship between to genres. And it will be worth asking which genre, tragedy or comedy, more faithfully represents the human experience…


All best,
