The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson Summary

The greatest haunted house story ever written, the inspiration for a 10-part Netflix series directed by Mike Flanagan and starring Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, and Timothy Hutton First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

The Haunting of Hill House (Horror Classic) by Shirley Jackson Summary

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Hill House is an 80 year-old mansion built by long-deceased Hugh Crain. The story concerns four main characters: Dr. John Montague, an investigator of the supernatural; Eleanor Vance, a shy young woman who resents having lived as a recluse caring for her demanding invalid mother; Theodora, a flamboyant, bohemian, possibly lesbian artist; and Luke Sanderson, the young heir to Hill House, who is also the host to the others. Dr. Montague hopes to find scientific evidence of the existence of the supernatural. He rents Hill House for a summer and invites as his guests several people whom he has chosen because of their past experience with paranormal events. Of these, only Eleanor and Theodora accept. All four of the inhabitants begin to experience strange events while in the house, including unseen noises and ghosts roaming the halls at night, strange writing on the walls and other unexplained events. Eleanor tends to experience phenomena to which the others are oblivious. At the same time, Eleanor may be losing touch with reality...A finalist for the National Book Award, The Haunting of Hill House is considered as one of the best literary ghost stories published during the 20th century, even by stalwarts like Stephen King. It has been made into two feature films, a TV series and a play. Jackson's novel relies on terror rather than horror to elicit emotion in the reader, utilizing complex relationships between the mysterious events in the house and the characters' psyches. A must read!

Le Tour d'écrou by Henry James Summary

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Henry James. "La plupart des drames que James a imaginés ont pour origine le fait que quelqu'un a un secret à garder, et que quelqu'un a intérêt à le connaître. Mais il ne s'agit pas de roman-feuilleton. Ce secret est bien au contraire d'ordre uniquement mental. Ce secret est un véritable secret, c'est-à-dire une configuration mystérieuse de l'esprit, un détour caché de l'intelligence, un refuge presque inabordable de l'âme. Et l'intérêt de celui qui veut savoir garde également un caractère purement spéculatif. Et ce secret est parfois tout un amour, parfois toute la vie d'un être. Avec les livres de Henry James, il semble que tout se passe dans le silence, sauf au moment où le silence se brise, et avec lui, parfois, la vie de celui qui le garde." - Edmond Jaloux

The Streaming of Hill House by Kevin J. Wetmore, Jr. Summary

Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House has received both critical acclaim and heaps of contempt for its reimagining of Shirley Jackson's seminal horror novel. Some found Mike Flanagan's series inventive, respectful and terrifying. Others believed it denigrated and diminished its source material, with some even calling it a "betrayal" of Jackson. Though the novel has produced a great deal of scholarship, this is the first critical collection to look at the television series. Featuring all new essays from noted scholars and award-winning horror authors, this collection goes beyond comparing the novel and the Netflix adaptation to look at the series through the lenses of gender, architecture, education, hauntology, addiction, and trauma studies including analysis of the show in the context of 9/11 and #Me Too. Specific essays compare the series with other texts, from Flanagan's other films and other adaptations of Jackson's novel, to the television series Supernatural, Toni Morrison's Beloved and the 2018 film Hereditary. Together, this collection probes a terrifying television series about how scary reality can truly be, usually because of what it says about our lives in America today.

Shirley Jackson's American Gothic by Darryl Hattenhauer Summary

Best known for her short story "The Lottery" and her novel The Haunting of Hill House, Shirley Jackson produced a body of work that is more varied and complex than critics have realized. In fact, as Darryl Hattenhauer argues here, Jackson was one of the few writers to anticipate the transition from modernism to postmodernism, and therefore ranks among the most significant writers of her time. The first comprehensive study of all of Jackson's fiction, Shirley Jackson's American Gothic offers readers the chance not only to rediscover her work, but also to see how and why a major American writer was passed over for inclusion in the canon of American literature.

Le blanc va aux sorcières by Helen Oyeyemi Summary

Miranda n'a jamais été comme les autres. Depuis toute petite elle souffre d'un mal étrange qui la pousse à manger de la craie, le pica. La mort à Haïti de sa mère quand elle a seize ans atténue encore son lien fragile avec la réalité. Rien ne parvient à satisfaire cette faim singulière, qui se transmet de femme en femme. Il y a aussi la demeure familiale, à Douvres, transformée en maison d'hôtes par le père de Miranda, avec ses fenêtres comme de drôles d'yeux carrés, fatigués, son ascenseur déglingué, ses corridors et ses trappes, où ombres, poussières de craie et parfum de rose sont autant de signes d'un mystère à dénouer, avant qu'il ne soit trop tard... Entre modernité et héritage classique – Brontë, James et Poe –, ce conte gothique raconte l'exil à soi-même sur fond d'histoire d'amour et d'obsession.

Hemsökelsen på Hill House by Shirley Jackson Summary

»En av 1900-talets viktigaste skräckromaner.« Stephen King I åttio år har Hill House överblickat den lilla hålan Hillsdale. Därifrån ser det ståtligt och välbyggt ut. Men det finns något »osunt« med huset. Någonting rör sig i det, går längs med dess golv, någonting omänskligt, skändligt - ont. Dr John Montague, en vetenskapsman som vill finna bevis för det övernaturligas existens, hyr det beryktade huset. Av tolv assistenter han velat få med sig anländer bara två: Eleanor Vance, en ung, tillbakadragen kvinna som flyr vardagen med sin handikappade mor, och Theodora, en excentrisk New York-konstnär. Med dem är också husets arvinge, Luke Sanderson, och på plats möter de husets förvaltare, paret Dudley, som vägrar vistas nära Hill House nattetid. Snart blir det klart för alla varför. Den som starkast påverkas är Eleanor. Som om huset ville henne något särskilt. Shirley Jacksons Hemsökelsen på Hill House har kallats en av 1900-talets bästa spökromaner. En amerikansk skräckklassiker som filmatiserats två gånger (1963 och 1999) och som nu också ska bli en TV-serie i tio delar på Netflix. Här i översättning av Inger Edelfeldt och med ett nyskrivet förord av DN-krönikören och bibliotekarien Jenny Lindh. SHIRLEY JACKSON [1916-1965] är en av världslitteraturens mest inflytelserika författare i skräckgenren. Hon föddes i San Francisco, men familjen flyttade senare till östkusten och delstaten New York. Shirley Jackson kom att ge ut sex romaner och lika många novellsamlingar. Mest berömda är romanerna Hemsökelsen på Hill House [The Haunting of Hill House, 1959] och Vi har alltid bott på slottet [We Have Always Lived in the Castle, 1962].
