Beschreibung:

A lively re-examination of the 'alien' as metaphor in film and fiction
This is a lively and stimulating look at representations, mutations and adaptations of 'the alien' in literature, film and television. *BR**BR*Using notions of the alien and alienation in a broadly defined sense, the contributors cover early science fiction, from the gothic aliens of Dracula and H.G. Wells, to the classic fifties Cold War sci-fi movies, such as War of the Worlds, twentieth-century reworkings of various 'alien' metaphors, such as The Fly movies and the Alien series, and comic variations on the theme such as Mars Attacks. *BR**BR*Moving beyond the conventional genre boundaries of the alien, particular essays look, too, at 'race' as an alien condition, and at the use of illness and disease as a metaphor for alienation in modern film and fiction.
