Medieval Studies And The Ghost Stories Of M R James

by Patrick J. Murphy, Medieval Studies And The Ghost Stories Of M R James Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Medieval Studies And The Ghost Stories Of M R James books, Montague Rhodes James authored some of the most highly regarded ghost stories of all time—classics such as “Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad” that have been adapted many times over for radio and television and have never gone out of print. But while James is best known as a fiction writer and storyteller, he was also a provost of King’s College, Cambridge, and Eton College, and a legendary and influential scholar whose pioneering work in the study of biblical texts and medieval manuscripts, art, and architecture is still relevant today. In Medieval Studies and the Ghost Stories of M. R. James, Patrick J. Murphy argues that these twin careers are inextricably linked. James’s research not only informed his fiction but also reflected his anxieties about the nature of academic life and explored the delicate divide between professional, university men and erratic hobbyists or antiquaries. Murphy shows how detailed attention to the scholarly inspirations behind James’s fiction provides considerable insight into a formative moment in medieval studies, as well as into James’s methods as a master stylist of understated horror. During his life, James often claimed that his stories were mere entertainments—pleasing distractions from a life largely defined by academic discipline and restraint—and readers over the years have been content to take him at his word. This intriguing volume, however, convincingly proves otherwise.

The Supernatural And English Fiction

by Glen Cavaliero, The Supernatural And English Fiction Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Supernatural And English Fiction books, This book is the first ever to describe and discuss all the principal English writers who have handled the subject of the supernatural. Among those included in Glen Cavaliero's absorbing study are James Hogg, Sheridan Le Fanu, Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, Walter de la Mare, M. R. James, John Cowper Powys, William Golding, Iris Murdoch, and Muriel Spark. As well as analysing the senses in which the supernatural may be understood, he relates them to different kinds of fiction, such as the Gothic novel, the occultist romance, the ghost story, novels of paranormal psychology, nature mysticism, and late twentieth-century uses of allegory and fable. He examines the impact of supernaturalist themes upon naturalistic writers, and discusses the relevance of the supernatural to the question of the truthfulness of fiction, and to contemporary literary theory and its ideological accompaniments.

Seven Masters Of Supernatural Fiction

by Edward Wagenknecht, Seven Masters Of Supernatural Fiction Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Seven Masters Of Supernatural Fiction books, An unusual grouping of writers, this insightful study includes some, like Henry James, who are indisputably leaders of the "canon" regardless of genre, and others, like Algernon Blackwood, who wrote almost exclusively in the supernatural; all, however, were clearly masters of this genre. The seven chapters, respectively on J. Sheridan Le Fanu, Henry James, M. R. James, Algernon Blackwood, Arthur Machen, Walter de la Mare, and Marjorie Bowen, each examine plot, character, mood, and setting in a traditional sense, sparked by personal observations and unique comparisons. Each is preceded by a biographical sketch and documented by bibliography and notes. For some, these chapters may be the fullest accounts ever published. All demonstrate the happy combination of a scholar's insights and a fan's enthusiasm.
