Summary
"Theorizing the Fantastic surveys, illustrates and analyses the impact that recent critical theory has had upon current understanding of the workings of nineteenth- and twentieth-century fantasy fictions and their place in relation to the literary mainstream. Integrating structuralist, psychoanalytic, postmodern, and feminist discourses, the book examines how the genre demarcations perceived to exist between fairy tales, gothic horror and science fiction can be productively broken down and rethought, using a variety of interrogative theoretical approaches."--BOOK JACKET
