Summary
"In this analysis of the shifting cultural perceptions of the 'good' and 'evil' child, Schober revisits such classics as The Scarlet Letter and The Turn of the Screw, while examining its more contemporary face in books and films such as The Exorcist and The Omen. He compares these American representations with those from other national contexts, as well as its treatment in the field of children's literature. The book adopts a unique interdisciplinary approach, which offers new insights by examining the possessed child trope within a broad historical and cultural perspective."--Jacket
