Child-loving : the erotic child and Victorian culture by James R Kincaid( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The question "What is a child?" is at the heart of the world the Victorians made. In Child-Loving, James Kincaid writes a fresh chapter in the history of the Victorian era. Dealing with one of the most intimate and troubling notions of the modern period - how the Victorians (and we, their descendants) - imagine children within the continuum of human sexuality, Kincaid's work compels us to consider just how we love the children we love." "Throughout the nineteenth century, the child developed as a symbol of purity, innocence, asexuality - the angelic child perhaps not wholly real. Yet the child could also be a figure of fantasy, obsession, suppressed desires. Think of Lewis Carroll's Alice (or, a few years later, James Barrie's Peter Pan). The image of the child as both pure and strangely erotic is part of the mythology of Victorian culture. And so, Kincaid argues, the Victorians viewed children in ways that seem to us now complex and perhaps bizarre." "But do we fare much better today? Contemporary society sees children at risk, in need of protection from pedophiles. Yet as our culture recoils from the horror of child molestation, we offer children's bodies as spectacle in the media and advertising, giving children the erotic attention we wish to deny." "Built on a decade of research into literary, medical, cultural, and legal materials, Child-Loving traces for the first time the growth of our conceptions of the body, the child, and sexuality, and the stories we tell about them."--Jacket

Of men and monsters : Jeffrey Dahmer and the construction of the serial killer by Richard Tithecott( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of Men and Monsters examines the serial killer as an American cultural icon, one that both attracts and repels. Richard Tithecott suggests that the stories we tell and the images we conjure of serial killers - real and fictional - reveal as much about mainstream culture and its values, desires, and anxieties as they do about the killers themselves. Why, for example, does Hannibal Lecter, though clearly dangerous, seem brilliant, even alluring, while his dark counterpart in Silence of the Lambs, Buffalo Bill, represents pure monstrosity? In a nation where murders occur every day, why do those we name "serial killers" seem so different, meriting a flood of public and media attention?
