The tragedy of King Lear is transformed and taken to a different level in the title work of this collection of three shorter works by the great Russian classical writer Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818-1883). Harlov, the "Lear," and in particular his daughters are vivid and lifelike; indeed, Turgenev has a penchant for portraying sympathetic profoundly spiritual women. A LEAR OF THE STEPPES AND OTHER STORIES also contains "Acia" and "Faust."
