Dyfyniadau

'Sears offers an insightful and nuanced analysis of how King's narratives both speak to and work against major Gothic writings, traditions and themes such as repetition, doubling and allusion, secrecy and concealment, the writer and the text, uncanny features of time and place, resurrection and its hazards, degeneration, abjection and monstrosity . . Sears has produced a sound critical examination of Stephen King's Gothic that is both thoroughly researched and highly readable. His study provides an opening for more serious and comprehensive critical examinations of King's work and suggests that King's fiction is best understood as part of an intricate intra- and inter-textual network. Sears' text is one of the few that offers an extended critical-theoretical engagement with King's writing, and it will be of interest to critics and fans of Gothic fiction alike.'
