Description - The Weird and the Eerie by Mark Fisher
A noted British cultural critic takes on some of the strangest works of art from the 20th century and dissects our fascination with the unsettling in popular music, film, and writing
What exactly are the Weird and the Eerie? Two closely related but distinct modes, and each possesses its own distinct properties. Both have often been associated with Horror, but this genre alone does not fully encapsulate the pull of the outside and the unknown.
In several essays, Mark Fisher argues that a proper understanding of the human condition requires examination of transitory concepts such as the Weird and the Eerie.
Featuring discussion of the works of- H. P. Lovecraft, H. G. Wells, M.R. James, Christopher Priest, Joan Lindsay, NigelKneale, Daphne DuMaurier, Alan Garner and Margaret Atwood, and films by Stanley Kubrick, JonathanGlazerand Christopher Nolan.
