The Tragedy of King Lear

The Year of Lear | Lear front matter The last podcast I listened to summed it up one way, I liked, “Sad, then maybe not so sad, but then, very sad. Or sadder, still.” These late eclipses in the sun and moon portend no good to us. Though the wisdom of nature can reason it […] read more
