This critical analysis of Kings epic novel The Stand makes a case for the horror master as a literary writer. A careful consideration of The Stands abstract themes, characters, setting, and text reveals how Kings work brims with the literary techniques that critics expect of a serious writer and the haunting questions that mark enduring literature. A thoughtful deliberation on so-called escapist fiction in the world of literature as well as an informed examination of one of Kings most famous books, this work paves the way for future studies of other King novels.
