Dyfyniadau

‘Crossen’s book is a welcome addition to the growing body of criticism on werewolves, that fruitfully explores the multiple facets of the contemporary werewolf-as-subject, drawing attention to a wide range of popular fiction hitherto neglected by academic criticism.’
Professor Catherine Spooner, Lancaster University

‘Crossen’s transformative book leads the pack of recent studies on werewolves. Rejecting the traditional “beast within” paradigm, she makes a persuasive case for the role and importance of these monsters in the contemporary period and positions them as key Gothic characters in cultural negotiations of subjectivity.’
Dr Xavier Aldana Reyes, Manchester Metropolitan University
