King Lear discussion

This week Melvyn Bragg's BBC Radio 4 discussion programme 'In Our Time' was about King Lear (sometimes on our Leaving Certificate course). Jonathan Bate, Katherine Duncan-Jones and Catherine Belsey were on the panel; the programme was a particularly good introduction for those who don't know the play well. It is available as a podcast here.

This link should get you to the archive of the current series.

Thanks very much for the link but unfortunately i was unable to get through it to the source ie the M Bragg discussion of King Lear. I shall be visiting this blog from now on in any case. I'm very interested in Shakespeare (!) and hope to read discussions on the plots, characters, and the language more.

Yes, we're very keen on Shakespeare, as you've noticed! Thanks for visiting us.

Further to the last one - the link seems to have been chopped off. It's now on the original post.
