Maynard Mack's "King Lear in Our Time" is also worth re-reading.  More
recently, R.A. Foakes' "Lear Vs Hamlet" is excellent on the shift in popularity
from Hamlet to Lear since the early 1960's.  See also, Foakes essay and
workshop on Lear in my book, "Teaching With Shakespeare," Associated University
Presses, 1994.  Also, in "Teaching With Shakespeare," Leah Marcus'
student-centered discussion of the different texts of the ending of Lear shows
how indeterminmate our interpretations are.  Incidentally, many of the textual
issues in King Lear should be clarified when Foakes' new edition of the Arden
King Lear appears.

Not so much to do with the ending, perhaps, as with Bruce McIver's comment on
*Lear* and romance:  John F. Danby in 1952, in *Elizabethan and Jacobean
Poets*, links Sidney's *Arcadia* and *Lear* in various ways.
