this was Shakespeare's best play. generally you begin to yawn at Romeo and Juliet by the age of 18. MacBeth lasts a bit longer, maybe to 25 or even 27. King Lear remains with you through life (I suspect.)
I am not a Cordelia fan. This is what you say when your father says, "here, I'm dividing up our kingdom. do you love me?"
"YES FATHER I LOVE YOU SO SO SO SO MUCH!!!!!!"
there, tragedy averted.
