I am teaching a 30 session acting course on the play and it is an invaluable source of background material and definitions. I have word means and explanations of difficult passages at my fingertips. I have been involved in several productions of the play over a 40 year career in the theater. I only wish I had this important edition with me for all of them.

Oxford World Classics edition has unreadable formatting on Kindle. Avoid.

The format makes it very difficult to read on kindle since footnotes are everywhere.

The staging of King Lear that Samuel Johnson admired over the sad thing that WS wrote. It's great that you can lay your hands on this so easily!

The merits of this masterpiece are unassailable, so I will focus instead on the edition itself. As in others of the Oxford Shakespeare, the text is abundantly supplemented with on-page notes, making for convenient and enjoyable assistance, particularly in aid to understanding archaic terms or unusual grammatical structures. In addition there is the excellent, lengthy Introduction. The paper is thick enough to endure multiple readings and frequent use. These newly reprinted (2008) volumes of the series are wonderful.

The OXFORD is a great source. What the ARDEN'S may not touch on, these do, and thus, shed more light on the subject at hand.
