Summary
"Dislocating the End examines how two concepts - catastrophe and typology - have reconceived the notion of ending. This innovation in ending has in turn gone hand in hand with innovation in genre. Focusing on Shakespeare's King Lear, Defoe's A Journal of the Plague Year, and Gershom Scholem's theory of catastrophe, this book shows the implications of displaced endings for tragedy, novel, and historiography."--BOOK JACKET
