Product Details

Product Description


"The Dark Descent is not a descent at all. Here, as in his other fine books, Tony Magistrale's scholarship has lifted the focus on King's work high above reviewer rhetoric and petty critical squabbles. These essays transcend the critical ladder and meet King on his own ground. Magistrale has editorially sustained purity of literary discourse that is wonderfully free of judgment."-Joseph A. Citro, horror writer --from the foreword

Book Description

One of America's most popular novelists, Stephen King has begun to receive serious attention from scholars and literary critics. Magistrale assembles 15 illuminating original essays that consider King from a variety of intellectual orientations, elevating King scholarship to a new level of critical discourse.
