Incisive monograph about the relation between horror fiction and Protestantism. Excerpt from front flap: "_Horror Fiction in the Protestant Tradition_ analyses in detail the cultural determinants of a literary form, relocating them for a modern reader in certain preoccupations common to theology and law throughout the period from the Glorious Revolution to the First World War and beyond. The ultimate subject of this thought-provoking study is the rich deposit of cultural expectations available, often unconsciously, to readers and writers of horror fiction. With a fresh eye, Victor Sage isolates the means by which the English Protestant tradition preserves and transmits horror." Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
