Because he's a man. And creeping me out. I have to echo this. Poe was an accomplished fiction/poetry writer but he was just as accomplished a culture critic, in my opinion. (This also helps explain the jarring nature of the title cards that spring up suddenly from time to time, hilariously imparting information no more orienting than the hotel’s crazy-quilt layout.). The shining costume. It was never about American Genocide. This is it. From literature, there are basically three 'brands' of the horror genre that have made their way into film. Poe was writing essays critical of the legal definition of humans as "reasonable" in 1840, he first published "The Tell-Tale Heart" in 1843 (three months before the Massachusetts murder/case mentioned above). The green overwhelming room 237 plays into the traditional association of that color with ghosts. However, because of his responsibility as a parent, he is forced to give up drinking.

By the time King was known to America, Poe was firmly alongside Hawthorne, Melville, Emerson, and Twain in High School English classes. In the nineteenth century it was the 'insanity plea' in murder cases that was all over the newspapers that inspired Poe's psychological horror. The scene in room 237 starts to show the greater scope of his condition (being emasculated), but it ends up feeling like a tangent when the story assigns no value to Jacks virility. – Kubrick discussing The Shining with John Hofsess, quoted from p415 Stanley Kubrick by Vincent Lobrutto As the supernatural events occurred you searched for an explanation, and the most likely one seemed to be that the strange things that were happening would finally be explained as the products of Jack's imagination.

As a lifetime fan of horror and scifi these are some really interesting new ideas for me and I appreciate your explanation. The film is based on Stephen King's 1977 novel of the same name, though there are significant changes. Of course the Shining is also a ghost story about a haunted hotel which seems to be motivating Jack to kill his family in order to collect their souls in some way.

Many of those moments have become rightly indelible images, burned into our collective memories: the blood cascading from the elevator, Jack chopping down the bathroom door with an axe, a man in a canine costume fellating a tuxedoed gentleman, Danny muttering “Redrum! I am neither supporting nor denouncing Room 237, but in my eyes it seemed a little ridiculous. Psychological horror, romantic horror, and scifi-horror. Clearly by 1980, the Common Morality in people likely to read literary elements in film is against the US and The Man. King himself always identified as someone like Randalph McMurphy, when he is clearly not. But he was on the wrong side of popular morality. I just read the books back to back and it was a wild ride. The creative act is associated with 'play', the opposite (activity undertaken in the interest of commodity) with 'work', hence 'all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy'. (Danny’s saddest exchange, no doubt, comes when he asks his father for reassurance that he won’t hurt his son—Danny's past experiences and the visions shining in his mind leading him to plant a seed of paranoid suspicion within Jack, which in turn helps to seal the doom poor Danny hoped so much to avoid. Kubrick is aided immensely by fantastic performances across the board. So the house offers him alcohol to basically remind him of what he is missing out on. Equally good is Duvall in an extremely difficult role devoted largely to crying and screaming. ), The supporting performances are equally superb, especially Scatman Crothers as Dick Hallorann, the Overlook chef who shares Danny’s extrasensory capabilities, and Philip Stone as Delbert Grady, possible onetime caretaker of the Overlook who appears to Jack as an insinuating apparition, encouraging all of Jack’s darkest impulses.
