AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This article articulates a psychoanalytic reading of Christos Tsiolkas's Dead Europe by analysing desire in relation to Melanie Klein's oral sadistic stage, a desire which, in the author's grim fairytale with Gothic-laden aesthetics, is metaphorically expressed through vampirism and cannibalism.'
