Book Description

Review 'Without doubt the outstanding book in critical and cultural theory published in 2003' -- Martin McQuillan, Edtiro of The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory, for the English Association'This is a brilliant book, Royle's writing is astonishingly adventurous. The book is indispensible to any study of the uncanny and thus to any study of literature. A critical tour de force.' -- Textual Practice'A playful, scholarly study. Densely and allusively argued, yet also full of pregnant one-liners. A fascinating and ambitious work.' -- The Guardian'At last, a philosophical work that discusses ghosts and madness seriously. Royle, in a style that is warmly engaging right from the preface, speaks directly to the reader. For an academic book this is a hell of a page-turner. A compulsive book.' -- Pireandello.org.uk Read more About the Author Nicholas Royle is Professor of English at the University of Sussex Read more
