With these words, King Lear set into terrifying motion the events that led to his downfall and madness, and to the death of his one true daughter, Cordelia. Shakespeare's great heart-wrenching tale illuminates the mind and heart of an eclipsed king, a man who becomes just another play on a stage of fools.

Shakespeare s King Lear with The Tempest

Shakespeare's 'King Lear' with 'The Tempest' is Mark McDonald's inquiry into the political philosophy of William Shakespeare through a reading of King Lear with reference to The Tempest.

Although he is considered to be the world's greatest dramatist, Shakespeare seems to have escaped the detection of thinkers on politics and the philosophic tradition of thought on man. Shakespeare's 'King Lear' with 'The Tempest' is Mark McDonald's inquiry into the political philosophy of William Shakespeare through a reading of King Lear with reference to The Tempest. McDonald follows an argument connecting King Lear to the question of natural right and to changes in the orders of the western world at the beginnings of modernity.
