About this product
- DescriptionThis work examines the allusions to Blake throughout Harris's four <em>Hannibal Lecter</em> vels and provides a Blakean reading of the works as a whole, particularly in regard to the character of Lecter and the nature of evil in the world. Blake's works and philosophy provide a foundation for reading these vels as an exploration of how humanity should view evil and to what extent evil should be accepted. <br><br>After establishing a Blakean view of evil, the book then explores Harris's vels and their film versions, which reveal that Harris uses Blake to suggest that good and evil are intertwined and coexist, and that it is foolish to try to see them simply as opposing binaries. Refusing to recognise and ackwledge their intertwined relationship leads to imbalance and a negative outcome, as revealed in the fate of Graham in <em>Red Dragon</em>.However, Lecter's journey illustrates the appropriate response to evil, one that ends in a marriage of contraries at the end of Hannibal.
