What exactly does it mean to be 'normal' or 'abnormal', and what happens if individuals find themselves on the 'wrong' side of the divide? Stephan Karschay addresses these questions through extensive readings of works by scientists such as Darwin, Lombroso, Maudsley, and Krafft-Ebing, and the most famous Gothic novels of R. Wells, Philip K. Postface de Philippe Druillet. Popular writers such as George Du Maurier, Marie Corelli, Rosa Praed and Arthur Machen drew upon a contemporary fascination with occult practices to construct texts that had an intensely ambiguous relationship to the proprietary notions of authorship that were so central to commercial publishing.
Through trance-induced or automatic writing, dream states, dual personality and the retrieval of past lives channeled through mediums, they imagined forms of authorship that reinvested popular texts with claims to aesthetic and political value that cut against the homogenizing pressures of an emerging culture industry. This book offers a sumptuously illustrated exploration of how artists from the United States and Latin America visualized the future.
Inspired variously by the "golden age" of science fiction, the Cold War, the space race, and the counterculture, these artists expressed both optimism and pessimism about humanity's prospects. Past Futures showcases work by more than a dozen artists, including the biomorphic cosmic spaces and hybrid alien-totemic figures painted by the Chilean artist Roberto Matta ; the utopian Hydrospatial City envisioned by Argentine Gyula Kosice ; and Incidents of Mirror-Travel in the Yucatan, in which Robert Smithson layered tropes of time travel atop Mayan ruins. The book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, also includes an essay by the editor and curator mapping central themes; an exploration of how Latin American artists have depicted astronomic phenomena, utopian projects, and the modern machine; an essay on spaceage art in Argentina during the s; and a study of Smithson and science fiction.
Wells wanted his epitaph to be 'God damn you all, I told you so'. Did the late Victorians really 'discover the future' or did the s simply recycle the s? At the aftermath of , this book is 'looking backward' and identifies startling connections between the apocalyptic fantasies of the last two centuries' ends and traces intriguing links between Nietzsche and chaos theory, Dracula and The X-Files, the Borg Queen and H.
Rider Haggard's Ayesha, among others. Monstrous Bodies is a cultural and literary history of ambiguous bodies in imperial Japan. It focuses on w h a t t h e b o o k c a l l s modern monsters—doppelgangers, robots, twins, hybrid creations—bodily metaphors that became ubiquitous in the literary landscape from the Meiji era — up until the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War in Futures of Surrealism offers a unique perspective on this brave new world.
Tolkien, Robert E. The birth of modern fantasy in s Britain and. Tolkien created modern fantasy with The Lord of the Rings, set in a fictional world based upon his life in the early 20th century British Empire, and his love of language and medieval literature. In small-town Texas, Robert E. Howard pounded out his own fantasy realm in his Conan stories, published serially in the ephemeral pulp magazines he loved.
Jerry Siegel created Superman with Joe Shuster, and laid the foundation for perhaps the post far-reaching fantasy worlds: the universe of DC and Marvel comics. Prose fiction from to helped demystify blank spaces on the map and make utopia available anywhere.
This literature incorporated, debunked, and reformulated utopian conceptions of geography. They engaged critically and creatively with the idea of utopia. If these writers ultimately concede that utopian geographies were nowhere to be found, they also reimagine the essential ideals as new forms of interiority and sociability that could be brought back to England. But YA horror fiction with female protagonists who have paranormal abilities suggests a resistance to restrictive gender roles.
This book examines what each of three types of female monstrous Others in young adult fiction—the haunted girl, the female werewolf and the witch—has to tell us about feminine subordination in a supposedly post-feminist world, where girls continue to be pressured to silence their voices and stifle their desires.
NIU eds. What will the future look like? To judge from many speculative fiction films and books, from Blade Runner to Cloud Atlas, the future will be full of cities that resemble Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, and it will be populated mainly by cold, unfeeling citizens who act like robots. Techno-Orientalism investigates the phenomenon of imagining Asia and Asians in hypo- or hyper-technological terms in literary, cinematic, and new media representations, while critically examining the stereotype of Asians as both technologically advanced and intellectually primitive, in dire need of Western consciousness-raising.
Fu Manchu to Firefly.

Mukherjee: Love, Cannibalism, and the Sacred. Monstrous Mutations and Projected Fears Them! Brower: Beeing and Time. Worlds Apart? But what is a fairy tale? Where do they come from and what do they mean? What do they try and communicate to us about morality, sexuality, and society?

Angela Wright explores the development of Gothic literature in Britain in the context of the fraught relationship between Britain and France, offering fresh perspectives on the works of Walpole, Radcliffe, 'Monk' Lewis and their contemporaries. Tolkien, C. No other artist working in mid-century pulp fiction created work as twisted as Lee Brown Coye.

This volume attempts an objective reassessment of the controversial works and life of American horror writer H. Ignoring secondary accounts and various received truths, Gavin Callaghan goes back to the weird texts themselves, and follows where Lovecraft leads him: into an arcane world of parental giganticism and inverted classicism, in which Lovecraft's parental obsessions were twisted into the all-powerful cosmic monsters of his imaginary cosmology.

Tauris, , p. In Remake Television: Reboot, Re-use, Recycle, edited by Carlen Lavigne, contributors from a variety of backgrounds offer multicultural, multidisciplinary perspectives on remake themes in popular television series, from classic cult favorites such as The Avengers —69 and The X-Files — to current hits like Doctor Who —present and The Walking Dead —present. What they all have in common ideologically is that they—or at least the genres they belong to—tend to be regarded as belonging to politically conservative frames of sociocultural reference. With the Star Wars saga, however, this idea is shown to be superficial and weak.
