The father of psychoanalysis believed in ghosts, and Frederick Engles attended seances. These theoretical essays evaluate these facts and consider the importance of the metaphor of haunting as it has appeared in literature, culture, and philosophy. Haunting is considered as both a literal and figurative term that encapsulates social anxieties and concerns. The collection includes discussions of 19th-century spiritualism, gothic and postcolonial ghost stories, and popular film, with essays on important theoretical writers including Freud, Derrida, Adorno, and Walter Benjamin. This study is intended for departments of literature, cultural studies, media studies, philosophy, and cultural history.
