Abstrakt CZ: Tato esej je studií zájmu Barryho Hanny o žánr beletrie, konkrétné o noir a hororové motivy, a také o tom, jakým způsobem byl ovlivněn jeho styl v pozdější době jeho kariéry poté, co byl zahrnut do výtisku Série Noire, publikovaném legendárním nakladatelstvím Gallimard. Hannahovo členství v této skupině autorů vyústilo v zásadní posun v tónu jeho posledního románu Yonder Stands Your Orphan (2001).
Abstrakt EN: This essay is an exploration of Barry Hannah?s interest in genre fiction, particularly noir and horror motifs, and the way his style in the latter part of his career was influenced by his reception in France after being included in the Série Noire imprint published by the legendary Gallimard Press. Hannah?s membership of this stable of authors resulted in a radical shift in the voice of his final novel, Yonder Stands Your Orphan (2001). Ultimately, Hannah?s use of noir and horror motifs stems from his own desire to be more commercially successful and retreat from the southern and postmodern labels, which enhanced his reputation in academic circles but limited his popular appeal. His inclusion in Série Noire gave the author a European literary identity that could simultaneously be envisioned as both popular and artistically respectable. Despite his ambitions to be more commercially successful, Yonder Stands Your Orphan is an extended critique of twenty-first-century capitalism, showing how the warring forces of speculative real estate and Mississippi?s new casino culture have corrupted the southern landscape and transformed it into a nightmare filled with spiritual zombies, vampires, and doppelgängers, as well as pimps and bootleggers.
