Literature Lecture: King Lear by William Shakespeare
3rd April, 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm£22
William Shakespeare’s ‘King Lear’. The last of Shakespeare’s great tragedies, here we witness the terrible consequences of ‘hubris’: the elderly Lear’s belief in his own rightness and his actual total failure to read basic human nature. His tragedy is the failure of us all: an inability to really see what real love actually is, until it is too late.
Part of a series of literature lectures exploring great writers, their lives and their books, followed by a delicious Launde Lunch. Presented by renowned speaker Dr Jane Mackay.
The lecture lasts for approximately one hour and is followed by further discussion over a two course lunch in the dining room
