[An] astonishingly energetic and groundbreaking interrogation of what [Vickers] calls The One King Lear.—Katherine Duncan-Jones, The Times Literary Supplement

Vickers’s argument for his theory might sound fanciful if it weren’t advanced with such expertise.—James Ryerson, The New York Times Book Review

This is a big, bold book, a major piece of scholarship for everyone to engage with. No one interested in the texts of Shakespeare’s work (and not only in the texts of King Lear) will be able to ignore it.—Peter Holland, University of Notre Dame

The One King Lear is concerned with one of the most interesting and controversial issues relating not just to the two texts of what some see as Shakespeare’s greatest play, but to the dramatist and his art. There is much to enjoy in this book, and much to learn from it.—H. R. Woudhuysen, University of Oxford
