King Lear as a graph, for your convenience

Who killed whom, and who merely betrayed whom in King Lear? Now you can see it all in one easy graph. Comes with a description of all the characters and relationships so you can follow along a little more deeply than just "Oh, green means married, ok..."

I've always thought it would be neat to have this sort of "map" for the plays. Naturally not as the only way you read the play, of course. More like a roadmap so that when you think you're lost you can refer back to it and gain some confidence that you understand what's going on.

That's so great--visualization really helps when trying to understand the complexities of some of Shakespeare's plots!

Your blog is a great idea. I came to it from a link on AustenBlog, and am so happy to finally see a blog devoted to Shakespeare! It's been added to my RSS feed already. I'll be back...
