Teaching "King Lear"

I love teaching King Lear. Just love it. I struggle to make it a discussion: instead I usually read significant passages and expound on their greater meaning and significance. I feel a bit like either mad Lear or the Fool, running around in front of the class yelling and frothing and laughing. Such fun.

"When we are born, we cry that we are come To this great stage of fools."
