Description

First published in 1972.

Shakespeare's God investigates whether a religious interpretation of Shakespeare's tragedies is possible.

This pattern is identified using the writings of Christian thinkers from Augustine to the present day. The pattern in the chief phenomena of literary tragedy is also traced
