Poe's progeny : an anthology of contemporary stories inspired by classic dark fiction( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Too often contemporary horror fiction denies, forgets, or is even unaware of its roots in classic dark literature. The man legitimately called the father of the genre, Edgar Allan Poe, thrust terror into the soul of humanity, while his illegitimate descendants located it in the cosmos, across nations, in science, through history, in nature, in the city--in short, wherever people come together. ... This book aims to show how the ideas and techniques of the greats might be utilised to explore the modern world. Here you'll find neither pastiche nor period prose, rather thoroughly contemporary visions whose aging, tell-tale heart still beats with dismaying memory of the past and irrepressible fear for the future"--Page 4 of cover

Mammoth Books Presents The Reunion by Nicholas Royle( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Reunion" is based on actual events," reveals the author, "but the story only really came into focus for me when I was invited to contribute to Ellen Datlow's Poe anthology. Poe is brilliant. I was at a conference recently where a teacher revealed that she had read Poe's 'The Black Cat' to a lecture theatre full of schoolchildren. She switched off all the lights and used a torch to read by. A number of parents lodged complaints, which she took as a measure of the event's success. My tale is inspired by a different Poe story."
Dream Treatment: On Sitting Down to Read a Letter from Freud( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : This text seeks to analyse a dream in which Freud writes to the author. Particular attention is given to the notion of treatment and, in a memorable phrase from Hélène Cixous, 'how to treat the dream as a dream'. Royle draws on diverse references (Donald Trump, Hugh Laurie, Howard Jacobson, Wallace Stevens, Jacques Derrida and Cixous), and focuses on a range of Freud's writings (a letter to Thomas Mann, The Interpretation of Dreams, 'A Disturbance of Memory on the Acropolis' and 'A Note on the Unconscious in Psychoanalysis'), in order to explore the relationship between psychoanalysis and literature. Particular attention is given to free association, deferred effect and the epistolary

'On the Run'( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : 'On the Run' explores various aspects of 'imagining Derrida'/'Derrida imagining', as well as the notion of a deconstructive imaginary. The text is at once critical, autobiographical and phantomatic or fantastical. Attention is given to Derrida's interests in cinema and ghosts, friendship and imagination, telepathy and literature. The question of a 'deconstructive imaginary' is pursued through discussion of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, Wallace Stevens and Sigmund Freud, in particular. The paper concludes with a meditation on dreams about dead people
