Abstract:

Charting the evolution of hair imagery in Kitchen Sink, this article sees hair as impinging – like the unconscious made manifest – on the protagonist's domicile. Hair evokes in turn mystery, fecundity, carnality and nightmare, twisting the familiar and instigating the uncanny in the original sense of Freud's term Das Unheimliche.
