Literature and the Supernatural : Essays for the Maynooth Bicentenary
This text is an interesting look at the supernatural in literature through a series of essays. The essays either consider the supernatural as a recurrent literary category which reveals or implicates historically documented cultural formations; or else the writer explores in a related way how the handling of a supernatural theme in contemporary film illuminates current socio-cultural trends. The work is an excellent source for those interested in studying the supernatural from a documented perspective as well as for those wishing to research the supernatural in the writings of such authors as Chaucer, Keats, Ferris, Melville, Stoker, Yeats, and Heaney.
