Shakespeare

posted by .

I am having trouble finding scholarly articles/essays on issues found in King Lear. Any suggestions?

First look at this site for Themes and Motifs:
http://www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/lear/

Then use a search to check articles on those themes. One is brutality... there has been quite a bit in the news about unwarranted brutality. Another is defiance of politial authority... there are others.
