One of the most powerful stories in the world, King Lear magnificently describes the destruction of a kingdom through greed, vanity, manipulation - and a bottomless thirst for political power. William Shakespeare is the undisputed master of describing intergenerational conflicts, but many other themes run through this magnificent story. Join Stefan Molyneux - a former Shakespearean actor - and Dr. Duke Pesta, a tenured professor of literature, as they discuss the deep meaning and existential themes buried in one of the greatest tragedies ever penned.
Dr. Duke Pesta is a tenured university professor, author and the Academic Director of FreedomProject Academy, a Live Online School offering individual classes and complete curricula for students in Kindergarten through High School.
