Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0907 Qs: Stevens/Lear;

Concerning the inquiry on "nothing," see "King Lear and Negation," by
Edward Tayler, _English Literary Renaissance 20.1 (1990). See also
Rosalie Colie's _Paradoxia Epidemica: The Renaissance Tradition of
Paradox." Hope this helps.

Alan C. Taylor asks for sources on the question of "nothing" in
Shakespeare. A few references I have at hand are

   Paul A. Jorgensen, "Much Ado About *Nothing*," SQ, 5 (1954):287-95.

   Sigurd Burckhardt, "King Lear: The Quality of Nothing," *Minnesota
Review*
      2 (1961):33-50.

   Robert F. Fleissner, "The 'Nothing' Element in *King Lear*," SQ, 13
(1962):
      67-70.

   Rosalie L. Colie, *Paradoxia Epidemica* (Princeton, 1966), 470-81.

   G. Wilson Knight, *The Crown of Life*, p. 82, n.1.

Oldies but goodies.
