This book is an account of the history and continuation of plague as a potent metaphor since the disease ceased to be an epidemic threat in Western Europe, engaging with twentieth-century critiques of fascism, anti-Semitic rhetoric, the Oedipal legacy of psychoanalysis and its reception, and film spectatorship and the zombie genre.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The impact of bubonic plague did not cease with the last major European epidemic of 1720. As Cooke's illuminating study demonstrates, Western culture is haunted by this horrifying disease which continues to infect the images of novels, plays and films. Legacies of Plague is a compelling and perceptive exploration of the grim aesthetic and political afterlife of a uniquely terrifying affliction.' - Margaret Healy, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Sussex, UK
