The Literature of Terror: the Modern Gothic is the second volume in David Punter's impressive survey of gothic writing covering over two centuries. This long awaited second edition has been expanded to take into account the latest critical research, and is now published in two volumes. Volume One covers the period from 1765 to the Edwardian age while Volume Two discusses modern gothic, starting with the 'decadent' gothic writing of Oscar Wilde and continuing through the twentieth century.
Jojo und seine kleine Schwester Kayla leben bei ihren Großeltern Mam and Pop an der Golfküste von Mississippi. Leonie, ihre Mutter, kümmert sich kaum um sie. Sie nimmt Drogen und arbeitet in einer Bar. Wenn sie high ist, wird Leonie von Visionen ihres toten Bruders heimgesucht, die sie quälen, aber auch trösten. Mam ist unheilbar an Krebs erkrankt, und der stille und verlässliche Pop versucht, den Haushalt aufrecht zu erhalten und Jojo beizubringen, wie man erwachsen wird. Als der weiße Vater von Leonies Kindern aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, packt sie ihre Kinder und eine Freundin ins Auto und fährt zur »Parchment Farm«, dem staatlichen Zuchthaus, um ihn abzuholen. Eine Reise voller Gefahr und Hoffnung. Jesmyn Ward erzählt so berührend wie unsentimental von einer schwarzen Familie in einer von Armut und tief verwurzeltem Rassismus geprägten Gesellschaft. Was bedeuten familiäre Bindungen, wo sind ihre Grenzen? Wie bewahrt man Würde, Liebe und Achtung, wenn man sie nicht erfährt? Singt, ihr Lebenden und ihr Toten, singt ist ein großer Roman, getragen von Wards so besonderer melodischer Sprache, ein zärtliches Familienporträt, eine Geschichte von Hoffnungen und Kämpfen, voller Anspielungen auf das Alte Testament und die Odyssee.
