Hollywood's Stephen King by Tony Magistrale( Book )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 805 libraries worldwide
For the past three decades, Hollywood has faithfully adapted much of Stephen King's fiction into film. Of the many major films that have been made, not one has lost money. Part of this may be explained in terms of King's own popularity in American culture; he has been, after all, a best-selling writer since the late 1970s. But more interesting is what this cinematic fascination reveals about postmodern American culture. In the first overview of Hollywood's major cinematic interpretations of Stephen King, Tony Magistrale examines the various thematic, narrative, and character interconnections that highlight the relationships among his films. Opening with a revealing interview with Stephen King, the book takes us through chapters that explore such popular films as Stand By Me, Misery, The Shining, The Green Mile, and The Shawshank Redemption among others

A dark night's dreaming : contemporary American horror fiction ( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 565 libraries worldwide
Looking beyond the tormented maidens, madmen, monsters, and other archetypes of the genre, these critics differentiate contemporary Gothic fiction from that of earlier generations while demonstrating that horror remains one of the most important and consistent strains connecting the diverse elements of the American literary tradition. They comment on the genre's enormous popularity and undeniable influence in American society and scrutinize its changing representations of women, monsters, and gore. The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary works
Poe's children : connections between tales of terror and detection by Tony Magistrale( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and German and held by 480 libraries worldwide
"This study traces Edgar Allan Poe's contribution to the Gothic tradition and his invention of the detective tale. It explores the connections between these genres in British and American writers influenced by Poe, such as Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Thomas Harris, and Stephen King. This book also examines women writers strongly influenced by Poe, such as Joyce Carol Oates, Sara Paretsky, and Sue Grafton. The last chapter of the volume considers films - in particular, the Roger Corman Poe series, Chinatown, Seven, and Blade Runner - that connect the horror and detective genres."--Jacket

Writing across culture : an introduction to study abroad and the writing process by Kenneth Wagner( Book )
18 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and German and held by 257 libraries worldwide
This book is about culture shock and the writing process. For an exchange student, the relationship between writing and the challenge of living in a foreign culture may not be obvious. The purpose of Writing Across Culture is to document and analyze the connection. If culture can be broadly defined as the unwritten rules of everyday life, one effective method for learning these rules is to write about them as they are discovered. In this way, it is possible to see writing as a tool for cultural inquiry and comprehension, and hence, an antidote for culture shock. This book encourages its readers to become writers engaged in a dialogue - between the individual and the new society - about everyday cultural differences

"Abject Terrors is an expansive study of the most significant films from the prolific horror genre, from its origins in the 1920s and 1930s, to its contemporary representations. This survey brings together close analyses of individual motion pictures, demonstrating the interconnections among these filmic texts and their contribution to defining quintessential aspects of the modern and postmodern horror film."--Jacket
The films of Stephen King : from Carrie to Secret window ( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Over seventy-five films have been made based either on Stephen King narratives or screen/teleplay scripts that King himself authored-yet this body of work has received very little scholarly attention. The Films of Stephen King is the first collection of essays assembled on the cinematic adaptations of Stephen King. The individual chapters, written by cinema, television, and cultural studies scholars, examine the most important films from the King canon, from Carrie to The Shining to The Shawshank Redemption. Contributors focus on the most intriguing aspects of these movies: race, gender, and technology, and draw conclusions on their socio-political relevance
