'El Rey Lear' es una de las grandes tragedias de William Shakespeare. Escrita en 1605, esta genial obra cuenta la historia de un viejo soberano que pierde su reino a manos de sus ambiciosas hijas mayores y sus maridos, y que solo encuentra refugio en los brazos de Cordelia, la menor de la familia, a quien había desheredado en el pasado.
Acerca de William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—their older daughter Susanna and the twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent, not in ...Stratford, but in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright, but as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare is thought to have retired from the stage and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616.Ver Más
