Title: King Lear Author: William Shakespeare Book Chat: Top 5 High School Books!
Why I Loved It: During school we read four Shakespeare plays: 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Macbeth', 'Hamlet' and 'King Lear'. 'King Lear' was my favorite because the characters just popped for me, and the sheer nastiness of Lear's elder daughters always stayed with me. Lear's descent into madness is really moving too. 3.
