    1.) Introduction Renowned American author Stephen King is famous for taking the horror genre out of its typical Gothic environment, and bringing it to our everyday life, proving that about anything can be a source of terror. By exploring the dark side of human society and breaching moral codes and taboos King manages to create the distinct feeling of uneasiness and revulsion which is a characteristic feature of his works. Although King himself generally does not mind being pigeon-holed (503) his collection of novellas Different Season (1982) constitutes a rather atypical work of his, in so far as the novellas are no horror stories to begin with.

    The checkered past and symbolism of the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King’s novel ,The Shining, reflects the characters’ pasts and influences their actions in order to show the building as more of an antagonist (of sorts) than a setting. One example of support for the claim is when Jack Torrence is having a dream after discovering the blood and bits in the Presidential suite from a gang fight years prior, where he believes that he is killing an intruder of the hotel with a mallet, but as he threw the mallet down, “the face below him was not of the intruder but of Danny’s. It was the face of his son. Then the mallet crashed home, closing his eyes forever. Suddenly Jack awoke standing over Danny’s bed, his fists clenched tightly.”

  • Response To Stephen King's 'On Writing'

    381 Words  | 2 Pages

    I completely agree with Lily that this was one of the funniest anecdote that we had read thus far. I think it shows another side of Stephen King because he is a dark horror and sci-fi writer, but reading about his life you see that he is also quite a comedian. In “On Writing” he has been able to make fun of his life and not take himself seriously, and you can sometimes see that he is reflecting on the memories and realizing in the moment of writing what they even meant. The anecdote that really stuck with me is when he talked about having both a drug addiction and being an alcoholic.
