The tragedy of King Lear is transformed and taken to a different level 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.
