The king is weary. To get peace in his old age, he turns over his kingdom to his daughters. What does he get in return for his generosity? Betrayal, warfare . . . and madness.

“Nothing can come of nothing.” (Act I, Scene I)

“You shouldn’t have grown old until you were wise.” (Act I, Scene V)

“When we’re born, we cry that we have come to this great stage of fools.” (Act IV, Scene VI)

Literary Glossary

作者

William Shakespeare(威廉莎士比亞 )

莎士比亞(William Shakespeare, 1564–1616)出生於英國的中產家庭,是世界上最偉大的劇作家。莎士比亞的童年因家境富裕而安逸舒適,然13歲時家道中落而未能念大學。18歲時,他與長他8歲的安.海瑟薇(Anne Hathaway)結婚,育有三子。

據說莎士比亞約在1590年開始成為劇作家。一開始,他只複寫他人的故事,鍛鍊寫作技巧,但他日漸出名,最終以演員與劇作家的身分獲得成功,並在1594年成為皇家官方劇團的成員,在此持續寫作直至終老。

莎士比亞著有37個劇本,作品廣泛分為四個時期:歷史劇時期、「歡樂」(joyous)喜劇時期、悲劇時期與悲劇浪漫喜劇時期。他著名的四大悲劇為《哈姆雷特》(Hamlet)、《奧賽羅》(Othello)、《李爾王》(King Lear)與《馬克白》(Macbeth),寫於悲劇時期。莎劇中的十四行詩使他享有詩人之首的頭銜,以及史上最偉大劇作家的名聲。

1616年4月23日,莎士比亞在52歲生日當天於出生地史特拉福(Stratford-Upon-Avon)去世,當地居民至今仍年年紀念其冥誕。
