ATTENTION: If You Have Read "The Hellbound Heart" --
I'm researching a paper on Clive Barker's novella (for a Religious Studies paper "The Body In Religion") and was hoping that some of you have read the novella, or knows someone who has. The deadline is fairly close, and I know I'm cutting it close, but.... If you have read it, I'd be very pleased if you could mention whether anything about the story struck you in a religious context... Cenobites, Frank's devotion to pleasure-seeking, the ritualistic way in which he reshapes his body... If anything struck you as having religious significance, I would absoloutely love to hear it.
