Sažetak
In this essay author explores spatial implications of the famous Dover Cliff scene of King Lear. Edgar’s imaginary cliff functions within the narrative as an improvisation of an internally generated space made to protect suicidal Gloucester. Author argues, in deriving its existence in conventions of stage poetry, the cliff calls on early modern stage patterns of space representation, and thus fixes Gloucester’s blindness as an avatar of the audience’s suspension of disbelief. The author investigate how non-dramatic visual representations of the play return repeatedly to Edgar’s non-existent cliff, and how the conversion of the cliff to the genre codes of film affects the scene’s location of the other in non- space. Author suggests Edgar’s technique of protecting his father by falsehood seems to anticipate the manner in which responsibility for the other precedes, in Levinas, the question of ontology.
