Dr Martin Lings
“Of the three higher aspects of a work of art mentioned by Dante, it is the allegorical meaning which asserts itself most immediately in the very dramatic first scene of King Lear…we are kept conscious throughout of the presence of the allegory, that is, of the play as an image of the history of mankind.”
Recorded in London, November 1994, by The Temenos Academy.
