About this item

Wilcock places Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear within the context of contemporary religious politics. In particular he investigates the "war" between the Catholic cross and Protestant Bible, and wonders whether Shakespearean scholars have not taken notice because of a cultural mechanism controlling the depiction of the English Reformation. He covers land, love, and the real deal; the war in King Lear, King Lear as Shakespeare's "writing on the wall,"infra quatuor Maria," real Mary-Gold, and filtering the Shakespearean lake.
