Enraged and disappointed over daughter Cordelia's declaration, he banishes her and divides his kingdom equally between her two sisters.

Treachery and betrayal lead to tragedy as the king slowly loses his grip on reality., Timeless Shakespeare-designed for the struggling reader and adapted to retain the integrity of the original play. These classic plays retold will grab a student's attention from the first page. Presented in traditional play script format, each title features simplified language, and strict adherence to the tone and integrity of the original. Audiobook for each title is paced for students to follow the text word-for-word. Books are sold separately. The king is weary. To get peace in his old age, he turns over his kingdom to his daughters.
