King Lear

Title

King Lear

Description

Compare the text of this play to the text of the beginning of the forged manuscript of Kynge Leare. The ridiculous spellings in Kynge Leare, it turns out, would have seemed just as ridiculous to Shakespeare as they did to the Edmond Malone in 1796 and to us in the present.
