Sample text

However, in Stephen King’s ’Salem’s Lot (1975) and Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire (1976), children are corrupted by vampires, while in Night of the Living Dead (1968) and The Children (1980), children are transformed into killer zombies. A further example is provided by King’s Pet Sematary (1983), where a little boy is resurrected as a killer monster after being buried in ancient Indian ground. King is an interesting case in point. The phenomenally successful author broke into the literary scene in the 1970s with a book about a lost adolescent girl possessed of terrifying supernatural powers.

The Puritans saw their mission into the New World as ordained by God. As such, the trials of colonisation in the wilderness became the confrontation with a satanic world of darkness inhabited by devils, that is, Indians (Ruland and Bradbury 26–9). The threat of being taken by Indians or, worse, of turning The New England Connection 41 Indian/going Native was never far from the Puritan mind. Thus when Mary Short complains of her body being pinched, bitten and slashed, she is not only exhibiting the signs of possession, she is also reliving the Puritan nightmare of Indian captivity.

Discourses of class, as we shall see, are also very important to British possessed child narratives, more so than those from the United States. Finally, Tzvetan Todorov’s structuralist study of the fantastic as a literary genre will be considered specifically in relation to the possessed child. For Todorov, the experience of the fantastic is that which depends on a hesitation between two adjacent generic modes, the uncanny and the marvellous. In the uncanny, or supernatural expliqué, phenomena in a text that are apparently inexplicable become explicable Introduction 37 after all, while in the marvellous, or supernatural accepted, new laws of nature must be entertained to account for those phenomena.
