King Lear is Shakespeare's tragedy of the descent into madness of a legendary British king.Bibliographic notes
As with Shakespeare's other plays, there is no known "original" manuscript of King Lear, though its first publication, a quarto edition published in 1608, may have been based on a working draft of Shakespeare's. The play was published again with some corrections in 1619. A version with significant changes was also included in the First Folio of 1623, published seven years after Shakespeare's death. Texts from these and other sources were used to create subsequent editions of the play.See also
