Summary:
"Transcendent Writers in Stephen King's Fiction combines a post-Jungian critical perspective of the puer aeternus. Offering new insight into King's work, it provides reconceptualisation of the eternal youth to develop a new theory: the concept of the transcendent writer. Transcendent Writers in Stephen King's Fiction will be of interest to Jungian and post-Jungian scholars, philosophers and teachers focusing on the theme of psychological development and identity, and to those studying literature with a particular interest in horror"-- Provided by publisher.
