Book Description

The fictionalized Los Angeles of television's Angel is a world filled with literature--from the all-important Shansu prophecy that predicts Angel's return to a state of humanity to the ever-present books dominating the characters' research sessions. This collection brings together essays that engage Angel as a text to be addressed within the wider fields of narrative and literature. It is divided into four distinct parts, each with its own internal governing themes and focus: archetypes, narrative and identity, theory and philosophy, and genre. Each provides opportunities for readers to examine a wide variety of characters, tropes, and literary nuances and influences throughout all five televised seasons of the series and in the current continuation of the series in comic book form.

The television series Angel has more thought put into than your typical spin off. "The Literary Angel: Essays on Influences and Traditions Reflected in the Joss Whedon Series" discusses the series literary background and the workings of the shows. From common themes of its characters to the story structures and tropes, Amijo Comeford & Tamy Brunett bring new light into many people's favorite series. "The Literary Angel" is a fine take on the show, a top pick for fans and students of the less obvious elements of television.
