Abstract

The first section of this thesis consists of a collect of original short fictions which encompass a variety of themes and modes. Amongst other concerns, these stories probe ideas of safety, threat and invasion originating from both outside and inside of the home thereby questioning assumptions of the home as a secure and safe place. A criticism in the second section examines five short stories, from a variety of influential writers, to compare and demonstrate the development of states of high anxiety through the use of the reader’s knowledge and experiences of cultural or community identity and the home. Impressions of the uncanny are invariably involved.
