The Alpine horror space in E.F. Benson’s story The Horror-Horn


The article presents the image of the Alps in the work of the British writer Edward Frederick Benson. The author focuses in her reflections on Benson’s story The Horror-Horn, still unpublished in Poland, one of the first works which feature an icon of popular culture: the abominable snowman. In his story Benson depicts the Alps in accordance with a convention typical of horror literature, though the descriptions of mountain peaks have their roots also in the folk tradition or in mythological images. An analysis illustrating Benson’s “Alpine horror” mechanism is complemented by a fragment of The Horror-Horn translated into Polish.
