Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: The Author: Alan Rosen is Lecturer in the English Department at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. He has published on early-modern drama and on Holocaust literature. He has recently edited Celebrating Elie Wiesel: Stories, Essays, Reflections (1998) and is currently writing a book on representing the Holocaust.
