Verses 1-34

Job 41:1

For the sake of its literary interest, Charles Lamb's famous application of this verse in his essay on 'Shakespeare's Tragedies' may be cited: 'The play (i.e. King Lear') is beyond all art, as the tamperings with it show: it is too hard and stony; it must have love scenes and a happy ending. It is not enough that Cordelia is a daughter, she must shine as a lover too. Fate has put his hook in the nostrils of this leviathan, for Garrick and his followers, the showmen of the scene, to draw the mighty beast about more easily.

Reference. XLII. 1-10. A. Maclaren, Expositions of Holy Scripture Job, p. 63.
