Beschreibung

Interweaving psychoanalysis, gender and cultural studies, and postmodern theories of geopolitics, this study of the monster in contemporary narratives demonstrates that the monster (and monstrosity) is largely a cultural and ideological production. Figures such as the serial-killer, the monstrous child, deformed bodies and spatially-influenced monstrosity will be considered through analyses of texts by Peter Ackroyd, Bret Easton Ellis, and Angela Carter (among others). The conclusion proposes that language itself becomes monstrous when it attempts, and fails, to articulate the monster.
