Last night I finished reading Learby Edward Bond. What a powerful retelling of the famous play. No, the word "retelling " is wrong. It is a completely different narrative, modern and frightfully true. I was shocked not by the violence depicted in the play, although some scenes were indeed very vivid. I was shocked how often history repeats itself. Lear lived many centuries ago, he lived in 20th century and he lives today. But be aware of his daughters.
