    Edward St Aubyn

    The latest in the current Hogarth Shakespeare series is a ferocious and memorable reworking of ‘King Lear’, with an aging media moghul at the epicentre of the storm. Witty and caustic, St Aubyn plays Goneril and Regan as grotesque Ugly Sisters; the Cordelia character shows how hard it is to make kindness sing off the page. In modernising the play, St Aubyn gives us more of a contemporary critique than a tragedy; immensely readable.

    Another in the current series of Shakespeare for our times – ‘The Taming of the Shrew’. So far we’ve had Winterson’s ‘Winter’s Tale’ and Jacobson’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’.
