Kean, Edmund (17871833)

Kean, Edmund, distinguished English tragedian, born in London; trod the stage from his infancy; his first success was Shylock in the “Merchant of Venice” in 1814, and the representation of it was followed by equally famous representations of Richard III., Othello, and Sir Giles Overreach; he led a very dissipated life, and under the effects of it his constitution gave way; he broke down one evening beside his son as Iago, as he was playing the part of Othello, was carried off the stage, and never appeared on the boards again (17871833).
