“Jack the Ripper’s Bodies–without–Organs: Affect and Psychogeography under the scalpel in From Hell”

Found on the Internet, it’s an article  by Anna Powell published on the “THE IRISH JOURNAL OF GOTHIC AND HORROR STUDIES”.

The Author writes:

“My exploration in this article is twofold and interstitial. Linking, but distinguishing literal and figural bodies, it moves across distinct but intersecting planes: place and time, history and philosophy, fact and fantasy. I write at the junction of Deleuzian affect and the psychogeography that overtly shapes the plot and locale of From Hell, a film ostensibly based on popular crime culture and historical events in the slums of late Victorian London. Linking philosophical theories of duration and the virtual with the work of psychogeographic writers on recognisable historical events and actual locales, I set out to explore the affective geographies of Gothic horror film.”
