Subject: MM as Christian Allegory
Two questions: (1) Would someone on the list please identify for me
those books/articles in which G. Wilson Knight, Roy Battenhouse, and N.
Coghill make their arguments for Measure for Measure as a Christian
Allegory; (2) I have been unable identify anyone as having made an
argument for Measure for Measure as an exploration by WS into
Absolutism/Divine Right of Kings. Is someone on the list aware of anyone
having suggested such a reading? As this request is a personal appeal,
rather than a possible discussion thread, please reply off list.
