So why are people so fascinated with the grotesque? David Ward tackles this issue in Smithsonian.com. He writes of a Civil War photographer and images of death and destruction from this pivotal moment in history. “What is uncomfortable to us is that it is likely that a sizeable portion of Gardner’s audience, then and now, was excited by the casualty photographs in ways that are difficult, even today, to explain except as part of human psychology’s attraction to the forbidden or the unseen,” he said.
A review of the book The Lust for Blood says the future may be even darker. “Kottler considers ideas from a variety of theories and research to explain our responses to violence, raises questions about the shifting line between normal and abnormal, evaluates the confusion and ambivalence that many people feel when witnessing others’ suffering, and suggests future trends in society’s attitudes toward violence.”
The National Catholic Register says, “Yet the grotesque, the macabre, and the frightful have an abiding place in human imagination and culture — a place that Christian sensibility has historically not seen fit to reject or condemn, at least entirely.”
