Summary
"The thirteen essays in this critical volume explore the different ways in which evil is portrayed in popular culture, particularly through film and novels. Collectively, these essays suggest how vital the notion of evil is to our culture, which in turn suggest a need to reflect on what it means to value what is good"--Provided by publisher
