From Hamlet to Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, our culture has been continually haunted. Ghosts do exist, maybe not in a physical sense, but certainly as a means of expressing our concerns for life and death, the passing of time, and the conscious and unconscious minds. The powerful metaphor of haunting has been used as an intellectual tool by writers and thinkers such as Marx, Freud and Derrida in the fields of politics, psychoanalysis and philosophy respectively. Ghosts: Deconstruction, Psychoanalysis, History is a collection of essays that interrogates these ghosts, examining the efficacy and use of the concepts of haunting and spectrality as they appear in literature, culture, and theory. Here you will find essays on nineteenth-century spiritualism, Marxism, gothic fiction, postcolonialism, and gender studies by a range of critical theorists and literary and cultural critics. Offering a variety of theoretical perspectives, the volume considers haunting across the disciplines of literary, media, and cultural studies.
