My first encounter with Shakespeare has totally swept me off my feet As much as I had heard of the indisputable grandeur of the most famous playwright of all times I never expected to be so immersed in the swirling undercurrents of the incongruities of human nature that are so vividly portrayed in this tragedy Even though my inexpensive Wordsworth edition wasn t generous with annotations or academic essays the universality of Shakespeare s art wrought in versed polyptotons playful aphorisms and grotesue imagery surpasses all attempts to categorize his work Always elusive and prone to countless interpretations Shakespeare remains inscrutable and daunts the present reader with uestions of yesteryear about the meaning of lifeA surrealistic bargain that includes the old King Lear exchanging land for the love declarations of his three daughters in the opening scene triggers a chain of events that combine a peculiar mix of humorous absurdity demented remorse and virulent wrath that escalates to a tragic climaxThe Duke of Glo ster is blind when his eyes clearly see and cheated by his bastard son the Machiavellian Edmund he accuses his legitimate offspring Edgar of conspiracy Two fathers in the autumn of their lives misjudge their siblings act impulsively and end up paying dearly for their pride One loses his sight the other his sanity but both preserve faithful servants that guide them through the wilderness of the desolate heath where the sky dissolves into tears under a raging stormLush with religious references Greek mythology and several doses of misogynistic diatribe the setting and aim of the story persists in being ambiguous although the critics seem to agree on Pre Christian Britain there is doubt regarding its moral purpose But whether Shakespeare confirmed or subverted the idea of a providential order is secondary to me The power of this play relays in the ongoing paradoxes that coexist in all the characters as it does in human nature for they all display an irrepressible tendency for extreme cruelty envy and greed that is counterbalanced with a great capacity for forgiveness repentance and love How can divine justice fit the randomness of an untamed nature that punishes the innocent without apparent purpose As flies to wanton boys are we to the godsThey kill us for their sport Is the blind or deranged man the Fool or else the Sage that illuminates the audience with sporadic lucidity O let me kiss that handLet me wipe it first it smells of mortality Whatever the case Shakespeare s response is uneuivocal Love is what keeps us going Without love children would be orphans lovers sterile and Kings beggarsYet love doesn t stamp out vileness indifference or sorrow because human beings are but forked animals trapped in a fabricated reality that try to swim against the currents of this vitriolic maelstrom called existenceBut oh the joy of flickering hope of stars aligned of virtue prevailing over darkness because with Shakespeare everything is possible So we ll live And pray and sing and tell old tales and laughAt gilded butterflies Edit August 13th 2017 From Harold Bloom s essay Lear beyond us in grandeur and in essential authority is still a startlingly intimate figure since he is an emblem of fatherhood itself Outrageously hyperbolical insanely elouent Lear nevertheless always demands love than can be given and so he scarcely can speak without crossing the realms of the unsayable

I was lucky enough to be living in Stockholm when Ingmar Bergman staged Lear at the Swedish National Theatre in the late 80s and I saw it twice Bergman s take on the play was very interesting and unusual he interpreted it as fundamentally optimisticObviously you re wondering why and in the hands of a lesser director it would probably just have been a piece of unnecessary perversity Bergman s reasoning was in fact not bizarre He saw the key scene of the play as the reconciliation between Lear and Cordelia this was the one shown on the poster which was plastered all over town Everywhere you looked you could see Lear and his daughter kneeling holding hands and looking into each other s eyes with relief and joy streaming from their faces What Bergman was saying was that everyone like Lear has done horrible things to the people who love them most Usually they never have a chance to say sorry or receive forgiveness from the people they have wronged Lear got that chance just before he and Cordelia died so we should be happy for him Bergman directed the play when he was about 70 If you know anything about his life you will readily understand why he might have interpreted it this way It was an extremely moving production
