Book Summary

This innovative study embarks, from a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach, on redefining the -supernatural- as elements that fail to be framed as -natural- by their socio-cultural environment. The -supernatural- elements depicted in this study encompass such monstrous representations as witches, vampires, angels, virgins, apparitions, and other universally recognized reflections of human existence - though not all -supernatural- representations are seen as -monstrous, - but as physical and psychological embodiments of common human experience. Contributors to this project represent a wide scope of literary genres and eras, as well as differing theoretical approaches, united by the common goal of defining the -irreality of reality.-"
