Go on yahoo education, there is a synopsis page and a commentary at the bottom. It helped me through my first level year in sixth form. King Lear is a great play, you should enjoy it for what it is, and watch the film with Laurence olivia and the guy that plays ben harper in my family, it's pretty much a word by word play recorded and put on VHS and youtube. You get more of a sense of the emotions and passions involved

Lear is the king. he has three daughters and wishes to give them their share if they want to get married. Something like that, im not from UK, i have never studied anything bout Sir Shakespeare but i've seen the play

It's Sir William.
Knights are always Sir + first name, never Sir + surname.

haha i did king lear in A2 as well.

his role is technically king, but he's getting too old so he needs to divide the kingdom into 3 for his daughters, but two of them are bitches, and he does that stupid love-test or whatever.

yea i can't remember it that well...

edit: you could say that lear is the hamartia/huberus catylist which begins the downward tragic spiral, as his pride/his love-test is what sets his daughters against him.
