Villains and Villainy: Embodiments of Evil in Literature, Popular Culture and Media

Abstract [en]

This collection of essays explores the representations, incarnations and manifestations of evil when it is embodied in a particular villain or in an evil presence. All the essays contribute to showing how omnipresent yet vastly under-studied the phenomena of the villain and evil are. Together they confirm the importance of the continued study of villains and villainy in order to understand the premises behind the representations of evil, its internal localized logic, its historical contingency, and its specific conditions.
