📙 Possessed Child Narratives in Literature and Film: Contrary States (Crime Files S.) by Adrian Schober — free pdf


This book undertakes a study of the trope of the possessed child in literature and film. It argues that the possessed child is fundamentally an American phenomenon which, first, may be traced to the Calvinist bias of the US as a nation founded on Puritanism and, second, to the rise of Catholicism in that country, to which Puritanism owes its origins.
