This revisiting of ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ will draw on the psychoanalytical concepts of repression, suppression and projection to explore the central character Eleanor. Centralising the importance of the biographical, and the ways in which the future is always haunted by ghosts from the past, the discussion examines misalignment, unacceptable femininity, the colour red, and the significance of belonging.
