Subject: Which Lear
Now that I'm finally teaching Shakespeare, I have a question I've never
had to face before: Which Lear should I teach if I have one week on the
text--the history, the tragedy, or the conflated version in the Pelican
(all three are available)? I imagine that I will refer to all three, but
because I have a quiz on each play assigned, I suppose it will be well
to have a text in common. My leaning, right now, is to go with the
unconflated tragedy, but I really don't know if that's the best answer.
