Summary:
"This book focuses on Harris's internationally known antihero Hannibal Lecter in the classic novels Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal. The work examines several themes within Harris' trilogy, including the author's artistic exploration of repressed desires, his refinement of neo-noir themes and the serial killer motif, and his developing perceptions of feminine gender roles"--Provided by publisher.
