Apocalyptic Chic : Visions of the Apocalypse and Post-Apocalypse in Literature and Visual Arts, Hardback Book

Apocalyptic Chic : Visions of the Apocalypse and Post-Apocalypse in Literature and Visual Arts Hardback

Edited by Barbara Brodman, James E. Doan

Description

This book focuses on legends and images of the apocalypse and post-apocalypse in film and graphic arts, literature and lore from early to modern times and from cultures around the world.

It reflects an increasingly popular leitmotif in literature and visual arts of the modern century: humanity's fear of extinction and quest for survival--in revenant, supernatural, or living human form.

The collected essays examine the origins and evolution of myths and legends of the supernatural in Western and non-Western tradition and popular culture.
