The Shining
The Fantastic
Tzvetan Todorov
Balancing line between the imaginary/psychological and the supernatural
Jack has a history of alcoholism and child abuse, so maybe he’s hallucinating –
but at the end we know it is supernatural
Danny could be voicing through Tony his own fears – or supernatural, ESP
It lasts as long as we don’t know which it is
E.g. Room 237, whatever happens to Danny in Room 237, Lloyd as hallucination
or ghost, other occurrences in the gold ballroom
The fantastic is sustained until Grady opens the pantry door
The Overlook representing the past
Photographs everywhere – 1920s Leisure Class
Built on Indian burial ground
Jack fits into the hotel – family dynamic (controlling, Wendy does the work),
pleasure seeking (Roaring 20’s, alcohol, doesn’t have to really work for a living),
nostalgia for a world that he thinks is easier
Maze – actual, model, car driving as if in a maze, carpet patterns
Minotaur – half man, half beast, ate children
Danny escapes, grows; Jack is trapped
Jack seems to be in control, but he is overlooking the reality
Halloran
Black man is sacrificed for the white woman and son
“Magical Negro” – black figure used to aid, abet, foster story of white people;
have some sort of wisdom
Shares shining with Danny, a child
Wendy
We become irritated with her mannerisms, physical presence, screams, &c.
Weaknesses make it real
Frankenstein
What is it about?
Are we born inherently good or evil?
Shortcomings of man – we can’t do everything
Limits
Nature of the soul – inherent? Can it be given?
Need for acceptance and companionship – social prejudices/isolation
Unjust society – Justine, deLaceys, creature
Importance of origins
Question of blame/responsibility/sympathy
Source of the science
Giovanni Aldeni
Experiment upon corpse of murderer
Metal plates set in head, electricity sent through
Muscle movements, limb raising
Electricity – life giving
Konrad Dippel
Student of alchemy
Lived at Frankenstein
Stole corpses to reanimate using concoction of blood and bone (animal
and human)
Dr. William Lawrence

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
