Abstract

This article explores a case of methodological criticism that has been neglected by Shakespearean scholars and, amongst them, philologists and critics who have studied and edited King Lear: namely, the mythic and linguistic model of Shakespeare’s King Lear between Freud (The Theme of the Three Caskets) and Lévi-Strauss (The Structural Study of Myth), in the re-reading of the eminent French classicist Clémence Ramnoux.
