Decisively a footnote to this discussion, but is anybody on the list 
aware of any literature on the relationship between Job and King Lear?

Comment:    Re: SHK 20.0233 Shakespeare and the King James Bible

For those of you interested in Shakespearean fiction:

In my novel INTERRED WITH THEIR BONES I play with Shakespeare's 
"signature" in Psalm 46 in what I hope is an entertaining way.

Without any surrounding evidence as to whether that "signature" is 
deliberate or coincidental, it seems to me that fiction is a fine and 
proper place for it -- and for the general possibility that Shakespeare 
may have contributed to the King James Bible, as well.
