Vol. 7 No. 2 (2018): Fictional Creature Pronominalization
Linda Flores Ohlson (University of Gothenburg)
In this article, pronominalization is analyzed in reference to the fantastic creatures in Guillermo del Toro’s novels: the trilogy The Strain (del Toro & Hogan 2009; 2010; 2011), Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark: Blackwood’s Guide to Dangerous Fairies (del Toro & Golden 2011), and Trollhunters (del Toro & Kraus 2015). The analysis is based on the notion that an intricate connection between human and nonhuman fictional characters is created and expressed through specific usages of pronouns.
