Gothic Remembering in Stephen King's "It Grows On You"
Keywords:gothic, small-town, abjection, semiotic, remembering, Stephen King
AbstractThis essay introduces the notion of gothic remembering as a means to conceptualize hauntings in a small-town setting. It emphasizes the breakdown of a normative construction of communal past by foregrounding the focus of remembering on abject images and semiotic processes of signification that undermine communal strategies of closure in remembering, thus leading to gothic hauntings.
