Abstract

This chapter focuses a discussion of the representation of masculinities in Gothic through a reading of Thomas Harris's character Hannibal Lecter, who appears in 4 novels. The article argues that Harris seeks to re-situate Lecter from marginalised and monstrous Gothic Other to psychologically traumatized hero in the course of the novels, at the same time placing him in a heteronormative romance with the figure of Clarice Starling.
