Synopsis

Arguing that the tensions between folk metaphysics and Enlightenment values produce the literary fantastic, Jason Marc Harris demonstrates that a negotiation with folklore was central to the canon of British literature. He uncovers the ideological agendas articulated using folkloric elements in works by James Barrie, William Carleton, James Hogg, Sheridan Le Fanu, George MacDonald and Robert Louis Stevenson, among others, and reveals the rhetorical strategies for applying superstition in both folkloric and literary contexts of the supernatural.
