Shakespeare Lear Project

This collection consists of early editions of Shakespeare’s play King Lear (1608, 1685), his sources for the play, and a 1736 adaptation of the play by Nahum Tate. These materials were digitized for Dividing the Kingdoms: Interdisciplinary Methods for Teaching King Lear to Undergraduates, an initiative funded by a micro-grant from the Folger Shakespeare Library and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
