Shakespeare’s King Lear survives in two texts, now regarded by many scholars as a case of authorial revision. But its sources were other versions, an anonymous play King Leir, and an episode in Spenser’s Faerie Queene. Comparison shows how Shakespeare’s is the bleakest retelling of the story of the legendary king and his daughters.
