• “Homespun” horror: Shirley Jackson’s domestic doubling

      Phillips, Hannah (2019-05)
      My argument will begin by situating Jackson’s writing among gender studies (considering the nineteenth century and midcentury), Gothic literature, domesticity, and horror. I plan to address three of Jackson’s novels, Hangsaman, The Sundial, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, through close readings of home spaces in the texts, relying on a term I will establish later in this paper as the “domestic double.”
