This book considers a range of twentieth-century novelists who practise a creative mode of reading the Bible, exploring aspects of the Book of Genesis which more conventional biblical criticism sometimes ignores. Each chapter considers some of the interpretive challenges of the relevant story in Genesis, especially those noted by rabbinic midrash, which serves as a model for such creative rewriting of the biblical text. All the novelists considered, from Mark Twain, John Steinbeck and Thomas Mann to Jeanette Winterson, Anita Diamant and Jenny Diski, are shown to have been aware of the midrashic tradition and in some cases to have incorporated significant elements from it into their own writing. The questions these modern and postmodern writers ask of the Bible, however, go beyond those permitted by the rabbis and by other believing interpretive communities. Each chapter therefore attempts to chart intertextually where the writers are coming from, what principles govern their mode of reading and rewriting Genesis, and what conclusions can be drawn about the ways in which it remains possible to relate to the Bible.

Aristotle identifies "the transformation from ignorance to knowledge," or anagnorisis, as crucial to dramatic tension. Using the Biblical "garden" as the locus classicus of anagnorisis in Western narrative fiction, this study establishes the connection between knowledge and mortality in Genesis, and analyzes anagnorisis and mortality in three nineteenth-century British novels, Middlemarch, Tess of the d'Urbervilles, and Pride and Prejudice, and in the "post-modern" novel Possession. Ultimately, it is a proof that the suffusing literary motif of "knowledge and mortality" is inescapable: it transcends fictional genre and period because the "knowledge of mortality" is humanity's most ontologically disturbing burden.

Earth is dead. The sun has expanded to become a red giant and has made Earth a barren, lifeless rock. But humanity is not so easily extinguished. Knowing that life on their home planet would eventually become unsustainable, humanity prepared itself for a life upon a new world - Jupiter. They called this plan... The Genesis Project. Millennia of terraforming has prepared Jupiter for human habitation and the use of incredible technology has allowed for the storage and resurrection of exact copies of individual humans. At last the planet is ready for humankind to wake from its six-million year slumber. But it turns out that man is not the only species that wishes to call Jupiter their home. A species known as the Gnathe, under the rule of a tyrannical brood-mother called Link-soo-shan, already exists there, making use of highly-advanced genetic engineering to fulfil their every need. Separated from the Gnathe by an immense mountain range that stretches around the planet, it soon becomes clear that is only a matter of time before the two species meet. The question is: what will happen when they do?

The book of Genesis in Bible has a fantastic story of the encounters between God and mankind, and a literal interpretation of that story runs counter to the current knowledge of physical sciences that mankind has. It leads to a natural question – “Can a version of the Genesis be created which is not at odds with the current scientific knowledge, yet remain reasonably close to the original narrative?” In this book, you will find a science-fiction version of Bible, one in which the different encounters that happen between God and mankind are narrated in a different manner. Once you read the version in this book, you will definitely wonder whether the fictional narrative in this book may indeed be closer to the truth than a literal interpretation of the holy book. From the story of creation to the struggle between Jacob and the angel, you will find a narration of Genesis which is completely plausible and consistent with the current scientific knowledge. You will find an explanation for creation within seven days, the obtaining of knowledge by eating the forbidden fruit, the creation of Eve from Adam, Noah's escape from the flood, the disruption of the tower of Babel with the rise of multiple languages, and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah with Lot's wife turning into a pillar of salt. These and various other events of Genesis are connected together in a novel that will make an interesting read for the science fiction enthusiast as well as a Biblical scholar.

What is the Gothic? Few literary genres have attracted so much praise and critical disdain simultaneously. This Guide returns to the Gothic novel's first wave of popularity, between 1764 and 1820, to explore and analyse the full range of contradictory responses that the Gothic evoked. Angela Wright appraises the key criticism surrounding the Gothic fiction of this period, from eighteenth-century accounts to present-day commentaries. Adopting an easy-to-follow thematic approach, the Guide examines: - contemporary criticism of the Gothic - the aesthetics of terror and horror - the influence of the French Revolution - religion, nationalism and the Gothic - the relationship between psychoanalysis and the Gothic - the relationship between gender and the Gothic. Concise and authoritative, this indispensable Guide provides an overview of Gothic criticism and covers the work of a variety of well-known Gothic writers, such as Horace Walpole, Ann Radcliffe, Matthew Lewis and many others.
