Dude, Shakespearean English, please. Huzzah!

Forsooth, a-waiting that itin'rant tome,
My pining, plaintive heart doth pulse in sorrow
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.

Is it recommended that I familiarize myself with King Lear before reading Fool?

I think it's kind of a hard read. My suggestion is to rent a DVD of it. The Olvier one is quite good. The Ian Holme one is not bad, but I think he's too young for Lear. The Patrick MacGooan one is okay as well. The Brian Blessed one is rubbish. Blessed looks more like Father Christmas than Lear. He'd make a terrific Kent, but his Lear is bollocks, as is the fool in that one. Go with Olivier if you can get it. John Hurt plays the fool. Netflix has it.

The No Fear Shakespeare is a really good version to read if you're going to read it, though. One side of the page is modern American English, the other side is the original text.

You can get Lear free online, of course, but not with the "interpretation" to help you with the language.

As I accidentally discovered earlier, the "No Fear Shakespeare" edition of ''Lear'' is online for free reading.

Last!

which means I have no illusions that the ARC will make it to the PNW and into my hands before the February release date...

but that's ok... I'm a big girl and - ummmmmmm - on occasion can be patient if I compartmentalize and pretend that there is no such thing as an ARC making the rounds

ta da! Feb will be here before I know it.... right?!?!?!?!
