Comment:    Re: SHK 20.0253 Shakespeare and the King James Bible

I'm happy to hear about your use of the Ps. 46 business, Jennifer. I 
have your book on my shelf to read, but this gives me a further 
incentive. Aaron, I actually have a substantial article on Lear and Job 
that will appear in the collection on Shakespeare and Religion edited by 
Arthur Marotti and Ken Jackson forthcoming (not sure when) from Notre 
Dame Press. The relationship between the two works has been argued for 
some time, at least back to Wilson Knight. Steven Marx has a chapter on 
Lear and Job in Shakespeare and the Bible, but it's not terribly useful. 
Better is a fine article by Rosalie Colie in the collection on Lear she 
edited. I think there's also a good treatment in Stephen Booth's King 
Lear, Macbeth, Indefinition, and Tragedy,
