about this item

This resource for students and scholars in fiction and literature surveys the cultural and political contexts of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction of recent years, written by writers from the US, Britain, and Canada. Contemporary authors discussed in Cormac McCarthy, Margaret Atwood, Jim Crace, Suzanne Collins, and Veronica Roth. While the book looks mainly at contemporary works, it also compares them to earlier works by authors including Mary Shelley and H. G. Wells. The conclusion focuses on Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven. The primary bibliography lists works by 23 writers. The annotated secondary bibliography is presented in many categories, including biblical apocalypse and theological contexts, contemporary film, young adult fiction, philosophies of the future, and eco-criticism and climate change.
