The Two Versions of King Lear by Orsolya Péterfy

The Author Orsolya Péterfy

Book Cover


This book was created in order to offer a new perspective in Shakespeare’s criticism, challenging new ideas giving an option between twentieth-century criticism techniques and early modern literary analysis. This book offers a glimpse into the sound critical and editorial background of Shakespeare’s King Lear, especially in the latest decades of the 20th century. It does not lead us to a sole conclusion, but introduces new techniques such as “early modern absurd” and “early modern destruction”. This is a thought-provoking piece, inspired by the political unrest in Hungary in 2006.
