9783656946434: Entertaining Violence. Distancing the Audience from the Violent Content in Garth Ennis' and Steve Dillon's

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, course: British Literature, language: English, abstract: Violence and the media have been sharing a long history together.

Hence, the 'intensity of violence is located to a large extend in the degree to which it is presented as immediate an impactful on the viewer' (King, ''Killingly funny'' 129). Nevertheless, King also argues that a huge amount of immediate violence can distract the audience (''Killingly funny'' 129). To keep their comic entertaining, Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon had to establish certain narrative techniques which helped them to distance their readership from Preacher's violent content. This leads to the circumstance that Ennis' and Dillon's work does not only contain hostile violence, but also a more humorous, almost kind violence. 24 pp. Englisch.
