The Spectral Metaphor : Living Ghosts and the Agency of Invisibility Hardback

Description

What does it mean to live as a ghost? Exploring spectrality as a metaphor in the contemporary British and American cultural imagination, Peeren proposes that certain subjects - migrants, servants, mediums and missing persons - are perceived as living ghosts and examines how this figuration can signify both dispossession and empowerment or agency.
