Shaping fear -- Between hope and fear : horror and religion -- Terror, horror, and the cult of nature -- Frankenstein, robots, and androids : horror and the manufactured monster -- The detective's reason -- Jekyll and Hyde : the monster from within -- Dracula and the haunted present -- Horror in the age of visual reproduction.
"... this book explores how fear has been shaped into images of monsters and monstrosity. From the Protestant Reformation to contemporary horror films and fiction, he explores four major types: the monster from nature (King Kong), the created monster (Frankenstein), the monster from within (Mr. Hyde), and the monster from the past (Dracula). Drawing upon deep historical and literary research, Braudy discusses the lasting presence of fearful imaginings in an age of scientific progress, viewing the detective genre as a rational riposte to the irrational world of the monstrous. Haunted is a compelling and incisive work by a writer at the height of his powers"--Publisher.
