I m all for setting Shakespeare s plays in other eras to clarify the place and ideas for people today Even so, I was taken aback to find KING LEAR set during the colonial wars of the 1750, with Lear and his court portrayed as members of the Iroquois confederacy, and their British and French allies playing some other characters, such as the Dukes of France and Burgundy This took a while to get used to, and it seemed odd when one Native American called a frontiersman Gloucester , Lord I m no I m all for setting Shakespeare s plays in other eras to clarify the place and ideas for people today

sure that it ever really worked it is just too strange, but I was able to accept the change of venue most of the time There are some very smart things done with the art, the cutting creates surprisingly few problems, and the whole Fool Cordelia matter is given a thought provoking and wrong twist I do think the approach was wrongly conceived, but after that the executions is quite good Hmmmmm Maybe this wasn t the one to start with I was looking for an interesting way to access a Shakespearean story In a lot of ways, this seemed to jump around quite a bit I m definitely going to give manga Shakespeare another try, but I didn t particularly enjoy this Also, I think I am going to read a brief synopsis of the story before I actually read it I struggled to follow certain characters partly a language thing and partly a manga thing Really cool idea, though I found this version of King Lear difficult to follow Setting the story in the 1750s during battles in the American colonies between the English and the French with King Lear as an Iroquois chief didn t simplify an already complicated story But for a middle school or high school reader attempting to read King Lear for the first time, it s not a bad place to start to get the gist of the story visually engaging, but using the original language of the play A brief synopsis of the story at the I found this version

series translates some of the greatest works of literature into a new format In King Lear, the aging king here a Native American must decide how to split his kingdom among his daughters When he scorns his one dutiful daughter and trusts the two selfish ones, he pays a steep price My first experience of manga and I m not sure I get it I thought this would help me understand the plot before reading the original version but I didn t enjoy it and now I don t want to read the original Sharper than a serpent s tooth it is to have a thankless child Lear 1.4.295 Well at least I learned modern American families aren t the most messed up in history Royal families in medieval times are giving us a real run for the money.When I watch a scary movie, or go back over a traumatic event, I don t usually remember all of it That s nothing special, but rather part of a well documented human reaction to suffering, drown it out To be honest, I think King Lear is a heart wrencher extrao Sharper than a serpent s tooth it is to have a thankless child Lear 1.4.295 Well at least I learned modern American families aren t the most messed up in history Royal families in medieval times are giving us a real run for the money.When I watch a scary movie, or go back over a traumatic event, I don t usually remember all of it That s nothing special, but rather part of a well documented human reaction to suffering, drown it out To be honest, I think King Lear is a heart wrencher extraordinaire, even by Shakespeare standards The tragedy of family love, the horrible struggle for power, the sad degradation of a mind, the inability to go back and undo a terrible decision, the manipulation of others through lies and sexual power, and an orgy of death at the end of the play I mean, there is very, very little silver lining in the cloud folks.This is a heart breaking play, and as I read it and cringed I asked myself why it isn twell known There are few strong characters in this play I like Kent the best, he s feisty and loyal, but one could argue he s just a pawn of the king I pity Learthan I respect him He makes rash and impulsive decisions and easily swings into moments of extreme ire He appears to lack control of his emotions and makes questionable decisions The daughters are bizarre, intoxicated by power and not that believable Even Cordelia isn t a fully rounded character She has a moment of strength in the opening scene, then she turns into another very hollow female character that lacks depth as the play progresses.Maybe it s me, but Lear just didn t do it for me this time through I m going to have a read a comedy next just to wash this out my memory I ll certainly revist this down the road, perhaps I lack the life experience in terms of being a parent to appreciate this play.QuotesCome not between the dragon and his wrath Lear 1.1.124My life I never held but as a pawn To wage against thine enemies Kent 1.1.155 In response to how old are you Not so young, sir, to love a woman for singing, nor so old to dote on her for anything I have years on my back forth eight Kent 1.4.38I have seen better faces in my time than stand on any shoulder that I see before me at this instant Kent 2.2.49We are not ourselves when nature, being oppressed, commands the mind to surfer with the body Lear 2.4.110 an interesting point that says essentially if we make the body suffer our mind is at ease, see two quotes below To willful men the injuries that they themselves procure must be their schoolmasters Shut up your doors Regan 2.4.300When the mind s free the body s delicate The tempest in my mind doth from my senses all feelings else save what beats there.3.4.13 This is why Lear is weird, perhaps the strangest cheer up speech I ve ever heard Wipe thine eyes the good years shall devour them, flesh and fell, ere they shall make us weep We ll see em starved first 5.3.22 I LOVED King Lear on so many levels First I loved the character foils, one clearly bad, and the other clearly good and loyal I loved the fool and the loyal servant, Kent, to King Lear, and the role they both played in supporting King Lear after his two oldest daughters start treating him like he is just an old man, that they should pity, showing no respect to his office and the gifts he has bestowed upon him.I love how Shakespeare used the theme of madness throughout the entire play,

the role they both played in supporting King Lear after his two oldest daughters start treating him like he is just an old man, that they should pity, showing no respect to his office and the gifts he

love how Shakespeare used the role of a fool the represent the real food, and those acting foolish.This story was also especially touching to me having witnessed recently friends and family get older and lose some of their wits, or physical ability, and to see how family or friends treat them differently, both in a condescending way, and also out of the good for the individual.Being a parent is hard, and being a child to aging parents is a challenge also I hope that I will be like Cordelia, Kent, Edgar, or the fool in how I treat them Such a good play Used for teaching the text to a year 8 class Graphic novels of plays are fantastic for communicating the visual aspect lacking in a class reading This modern take is especially engaging for young minds. Don t think being Manga added much to this story oh, wellIt actually seemeddifficult to follow as a Manga, but maybe that s just me
