Shakespeare's heart-rending tale of pride, rejection and love unfolds in this clear, modern version. The story of an old man's fall from kingship, power and riches to poverty and friendlessness, painfully groping towards real understanding and love, is told in plain, everyday language. The complete original text is laid side-by-side with the full modern translation. Ideal for instant reference and understanding, whether you are reading Shakespeare for pleasure or studying for an examination.
