In King Lear, one of Shakespeare’s most popular tragedies, Lear divides his kingdom between two daughters who encourage his decision through their flattery. However, King Lear disinherits his youngest daughter Cordelia who truly loves him yet refuses to engage in insincere praise. This division of his kingdom leads King Lear to tragedy and madness as families and factions plot to overthrow one another. This classic Shakespearean work explores themes of justice, authority, and reconciliation, and reveals the wisdom which can be gained through suffering. To better assist students in understanding the text, the King Lear Teacher Guide provides all answers to questions in the King Lear Student Book and all test and quizzes.
