ITEM#: 13520537

John Sears is the author of Reading George Szirtes and is senior lecturer in English at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Stephen King is the world’s best-selling horror writer. His work is ubiquitous on bookstore, supermarket, and personal library shelves and has been faithfully adapted into some of the most iconic horror films of the twentieth century. This study explores his writing through the lenses of contemporary literary and cultural theory. Through analyses of some of his best-known work, including Carrie and Misery, the authors argue that King offers ways of encountering and understanding some of our deepest fears about life and death, the past and the future, technological change, other people, monsters, ghosts, and the supernatural.

This is the first extended critical-theoretical engagement with King’s writing, and will be of interest to students, academics, and fans of horror fiction.
