520    This collection of essays analyzes global depictions of 
       the devil from theological, Biblical, and literary 
       perspectives, spanning the late Middle Ages to the 21st 
       century. The chapters explore demonic representations in 
       the literary works of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Fyodor 
       Dostoyevsky, Dante Alighieri, Charles Baudelaire, John 
       Milton, H.P. Lovecraft, and Cormac McCarthy, among others.
       The text examines other media such as the operas Orfeo and
       Erminia sul Giordano and the television shows Breaking Bad,
       The Sopranos, and Mad Men. The Hermeneutics of Hell, 
       featuring an international set of established and up-and-
       coming authors, masterfully examines the evolution of the 
       devil from the Biblical accounts of the Middle Ages to the
       individualized presence of the modern world.
