The Remorse of Judas by George Tinworth. Source: Monkhouse, “Stories in Terra-Cotta.” Monkhouse points out: “In "The Remorse of Judas" the action of Judas is passionate in the extreme, and is well contrasted with the indifference of the chief priests and elders. The suddenness and severity of his repentance, and the impetuosity with which he seeks to rid himself of the wages of his sin, are truly conveyed in that prostrate posture of despair. You hardly need to know that the wretch went out and hanged himself” (343).
