Reviews
Clive Barker: Dark imaginer explores the diverse literary, film and visionary creations by the polymathic and influential British artist Clive Barker. Met with critical acclaim in the mid-1980s for his unique contribution to the horror genre with Books of Blood (1984-85), Barker has remained curiously overlooked in scholarly circles for decades, despite his continued success as a bestselling author, filmmaker and producer, and sought-after visual artist. In this necessary and timely scholarly collection, these innovative essays by leading scholars in the fields of literature, film and popular culture explore Barker's contribution to gothic, fantasy, and horror studies, and interrogate his creative legacy. The volume consists of an extensive introduction and twelve groundbreaking essays that critically reevaluate Barker's oeuvre. These scholarly examinations range from critical discourses on splatterpunk and body horror, the Thatcher era, the dark fantastique, queer(ing) desire, anti-horror, iconic monsters and demons, and the influence of the gothic mode - as well as in-depth analyses of his celebrated and lesser known novels, short stories, theme park designs, screen and comic book adaptations, film direction and production, sketches and book illustrations, to responses to his material from critics and fan communities. Clive Barker: Dark imaginer reveals the breadth and depth of Barker's distinctive dark vision, which continues to fascinate and flourish. For scholars of literature and film studies, gothic and horror studies, and popular culture, this collection is the essential study of an extraordinary polymath. The book also features various illustrations by Clive Barker.
