The cursed village of Ewerton, Wisconsin is one of the great "bad places" in weird literature: a town that's just thoroughly bad to the bone--evil and dark and full of human suffering. And now A. R. Morlan returns to the scene of her classic horror novels, The Amulet and Dark Journey, with 25 horrific tales of men and women pushed beyond the limits of endurance. As Ardath Mayhar says: "The horror she evokes is not so much occult as uniquely human. The worst of human traits are her stock in trade. The hints of otherworldly elements are used in just the right proportions to make one shiver."

This thesis unpacks media representations of death, violence, and pain using the example of Matthew Shepard. Michael Lesy's Wisconsin Death Trip is used as a lens through which to reexamine the highly publicized murder of Matthew Shepard. Inspired by Lesy's book, this thesis not only analyzes media representations of the macabre but also demonstrates how images and the visual imagery employed in written text are used to tell a complicated graphic story; how the media have chosen to represent death and violence; and what outcomes the repetition of these images of death have on remembering and memorializing tragic events.

In this sequel to Fiction & the Figures of Life, one of America's most brilliant and eclectic minds examines literature, culture, writers (their lives and works), and the nature and uses of language and the written word. Included are discussions of Valéry, Henry Miller, Sartre, Freud, Faulkner, suicide, "art and order," and the transformation of language into poetry and fiction. The vividness and clarity of Gass's writing, the unabashed love and inimitable use of language-his startling metaphors, the sinuousness of his philosophy, the originality of his vision-make each essay a searching revelation of its subject, as well as an example of Gass's own singular artistry.
