Als Satan noch ein Engel des Herrn ist, kommt er des Öfteren mit Gott ins Gespräch. Der hat gerade ein ungewöhnliches Experiment gestartet: eine Erde, bevölkert mit Tieren und mit Menschen der unterschiedlichsten Art und Neigung. Das will sich Satan einmal genauer ansehen. Er begibt sich auf die Erde und schildert seinen Kollegen, den Erzengeln Michael und Gabriel in einer Reihe von Briefen, was er an diesem seltsamen Ort so alles erlebt. - Dieser Text aus dem Nachlass ist Mark Twain vom Feinsten: spitzzüngig, witzig und entlarvend.

From creepy picture books to Harry Potter, Lemony Snicket, the Spiderwick Chronicles, and countless vampire series for young adult readers, fear has become a dominant mode of entertainment for young readers. The last two decades have seen an enormous growth in the critical study of two very different genres, the Gothic and children’s literature. The Gothic, concerned with the perverse and the forbidden, with adult sexuality and religious or metaphysical doubts and heresies, seems to represent everything that children’s literature, as a genre, was designed to keep out. Indeed, this does seem to be very much the way that children’s literature was marketed in the late eighteenth century, at exactly the same time that the Gothic was really taking off, written by the same women novelists who were responsible for the promotion of a safe and segregated children’s literature. This collection examines the early intersection of the Gothic and children’s literature and the contemporary manifestations of the gothic impulse, revealing that Gothic elements can, in fact, be traced in children’s literature for as long as children have been reading.
