Synopsis: This innovative book draws attention with force and clarity to the prophetic center and apocalyptic framework of King Lear. Image of that Horror demonstrates how Shakespeare mined scripture for analogies that pluralize the play's meanings and universalize its significance. In exploring the play's literary and cultural relations, this book addresses the larger questions of King Lear's sources, its genre, and its Christian character.

About the Author: Joseph Wittreich is a Distinguished Professor of English at the Graduate School and University Center at the City University of New York. He is the editor of The Romantics on Milton and author of Angel of Apocalypse: Blake's Idea of Milton, Visionary Poetics: Milton's Tradition and His Legacy, and Feminist Milton.
