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.
