This comprehensive study of author, Thomas Harris' popular works focuses particularly on Harris' internationally known antihero Hannibal ""The Cannibal"" Lecter in the classic novels ""Red Dragon"", ""Silence of the Lambs"", and ""Hannibal"". In 12 scholarly essays, the work examines several themes within Harris' trilogy, including the author's artistic exploration of repressed desires, his refinement of neo-noir themes and the serial killer motif, and his developing perceptions of feminine gender roles.
