AbstractThe horror genre invites challenges for the creative writer, new texts for its readers. A horror reader can only predict what he’s going to experience; through the glimpses of fear a horror writer might imagine what he’s going to write. This research thesis is an attempt to evaluate the horror genre from several different angles by simply reading and critiquing. It assesses the practice of being a horror writer, and evaluating areas of debate. Areas which carry less significance which need highlighting, a reflection upon personal poetics made between the writer and the text. Ultimately, new arguments were formed on the basis of what’s available in the field already, arguments which could be considered a contribution towards the horror genre.
