To Andrew Lobo:

I suggest that you check out Michael Warren's work, including *The
Complete* King Lear, *1608-1623* (U California P, 1989) and *The
Parallel* King Lear, *1608-1623* (U California P, 1989).

Regards,
Evelyn Gajowski

Andrew, the one I know is The Parallel King Lear, 1608-1623 by Michael
Warren.  You have the complimentary texts side by side on the page.  It
can be tricky to find, but a first class library should have it.  If you
are very lucky, as I was, you'll find a review copy at a second hand
bookstore.

All the best,
Mike Jensen

Andrew,

Both versions of Lear, as well as a conflated version, can be found in
the Norton.  Penguin also publishing both together in the Pelican
Shakespeare.  http://www.penguinputnam.com/pelican/index.htm

And, of course, they can also be found on-line

Rene Weis edited a parallel text Lear for Longman Annotated Texts
(London and New York, 1993).

Andrew Lobo asks:

Yes, there is one, and I think it's the Pelican.  I use the Norton
Shakespeare for Lear because Greenblatt et al. have placed the Q version
(History) on the left hand page, and the F version (Tragedy) on the
right.  For comparative discussions of the texts, the Norton is the way
to go.

Yours, Bill Godshalk

Rene Weis' Parallel Text Edition of Lear is very good - published by
Longman in 1993. This sets out the Q and F texts side by side for
comparison.

Cheers.
