William Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest writer of the English language. Works of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, A Mid Summer's Night Dream and The Taming of the Shrew have been taught and been on stage since they were written. His influence on culture is far more reaching as he has invented many of the words that we are using today. King Lear is one of Shakespeare's darkest and most savage plays. In this tragic play, Lear rules a pre-Christian Britain, being foolish and old his decisions go from bad to worse. Misjudging his daughters he divides his kingdom according to his whim and vanity. His failure as a father engulfs himself and his world as we are reminded that humanity has free will no matter what fate and chance has in store.
