King Lear's Influence on Film, Fiction, and Poetry

King Lear deals with universal questions for aging parents. How should parents relate to an adult child? What do parents “owe” their adult children? What do their adult children “owe” them? Can parents predict the consequences of their decisions? Take time to examine this ageless story.

As part of the Many Faces of King Lear Festival, Oakton Community College presents: “King Lear s Influence on Film, Fiction, and Poetry,” a lecture and discussion with Beverly Friend, Ph.D.

The cost of this lecture is $10/person. The cost of the Festival (11 events) is $50/person. For more information, call 847.635.1411.

This event is funding in part by a mini-grant from the Illinois Humanities Council.
