The Beast Within. Hydes, Lycanthropes and Other Therianthropic Figures in the Audiovisual Imaginary
This book is an invitation to explore the different aspects of the cinematic treatment of the beast that resides within human beings. Werewolves, Hyde lords, cat women and other human-beast crossbreeds parade through its pages in a journey that spans from the foundational texts of Greco-Latin culture to contemporary film and from classical Hollywood to Eastern European auteur cinema. The topics and places visited in this book offer readers a chance to take a head-on look at these inner beasts, which are nothing more than incarnations of what frightens us about ourselves.
Coordinated by Ángel Sala and Jordi Sánchez-Navarro, The Beast Within features contributions by the coordinators themselves and by Lluís Rueda, Violeta Kovacsics, Marta Torres, Diego López and Mike Hostench. In these authors' writings, readers will find texts of various kinds, in a polyphony of formats and styles that provide new perspectives and new ideas regarding a fantastic film legend that continues to enjoy enormous vitality.
