Edward Bond's version of Lear's story embraces myth and reality, war and politics, to reveal the violence endemic in all unjust societies. He exposes corrupted innocence as the core of social morality, and this false morality as a source of the aggressive tension which must ultimately destroy that society. In a play in which blindness becomes a dramatic metaphor for insight, Bond warns that 'it is so easy to subordinate justice to power, but when this happens power takes on the dynamics and dialectics of aggression, and then nothing is really changed'.

Review:

'Bond's greatest (and biggest) play ... it is even more topical now and will become more so as man's inhumanity gains subtle sophistication' The Times

Synopsis:

Edward Bond's version of Lear's story embraces myth, superstition and reality to reveal the endemic violence of a rancorous society. Setting his play around the symbolic building of a great wall, Bond exposes false morality as the source of the aggressive tension which may ultimately destroy society. "In a play where blindness becomes a dramatic metaphor for insight, Bond has made it yet more gruesome than Shakespeare by stripping the scene of passion and framing it in a cool medical context." (The Times) This volume contains expert notes on the author's life and work, historical and political background to the play. "Bond's greatest (and biggest) play It is even more topical now and will become more so as man's inhumanity gains subtle sophistication with the twenty-first century's approach" (The Times)
