Book Description:

Unlike other horror fiction and fantasy writers, Clive Barker is true to the literary heritage of the genre. Though aware of the importance of entertainment in his writing, he embraces the traditional formulas of horror fiction and builds upon them, all the while alluding to the works of Dante, Poe, Mary Shelley, and others. This detailed study analyses the significant themes in Barker's writing, placing him in the British Gothic tradition of Marlowe, Saki and others.
