"Know that we have divided in three our Kingdom." With these words , King Lear set into terrifying motion the events that lead 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.
