Danse Macabre Audiobook Free (read by William Dufris)
Before he gave us the “one of a kind classic” (The Wall Street Journal) memoir On Writing, Stephen King wrote a nonfiction masterpiece in Danse Macabre, “one of the best books on American popular culture” (Philadelphia Inquirer).
Danse Macabre Audiobook is a non-fiction audiobook in which Stephen King tells the history of horror literature through the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as present the main influences on his work.
The story also brings a very interesting theory about the importance of horror stories and the role they have in “exercising” our primal and destructive urges so that we can live in society.
It was republished on February 23, 2010 with an additional new essay entitled “What’s Scary”.
In 1981, years before he sat down to tackle On Writing, Stephen King decided to address the topic of what makes horror horrifying and what makes terror terrifying. Here, in 10 brilliant chapters, King delivers one colorful observation after another about the great stories, books, and films that comprise the horror genre-from Frankenstein and Dracula to The Exorcist, The Twilight Zone, and Earth vs. The Flying Sacuers.
With the insight and good humor his fans appreciated in On Writing, Danse Macabre Audiobook Mp3 is an enjoyable entertaining tour through Stephen King’s beloved world of horror.
Let me go ahead and start and say I’m a big fan of Stephen King and I love his writing style. This book really personifies how he sees himself as a writer and how we are basically seeing “Horror” genre in general.
I would recommend Stephen King – Danse Macabre Audiobook Download to anyone who loves Stephen King and also anyone who is looking to get into writing scripts or anything to do with writing. The way he gets into the perception of the genre since it’s early beginnings up till pulp novels and movies and tv is fantastic.
To a younger listener many of the references of series from the 1950s and 1970s may be lost, but even in these cases, I felt King brought an intriguing personal insight that made the reading worth my time. Danse Macabre seems less like a TED Talk about the history of horror and more like a conversation in a bar. Only a conversation with a genius three times more intelligent than you and that knows the theme thirty times better than you, and is completely in love with it.
