Within the broad field of contemporary literature, horror fiction has only recently developed into a genre which modern scholars may legitimately regard as being worthy of critical attention. This comparative study provides ample proof that horror fiction can be more profound and revealing than many literary critics imagined. The only study of its kind, this book offers detailed critical analysis of the child in horror fiction, with special emphasis on themes relating to the child's social position within the family and its war against parents or authority figures, as well as its various functions as victim, evil innocent, and monster. Special attention is given to the child's consistent, stylized portrayal in horror fiction, which forms a sharp contrast to the appearance of children both in other genres and in real life.
