Tim Burtonâs films are well known for being complex and emotionally powerful. In this book, Helena Bassil-Morozow employs Jungian and post-Jungian concepts of unconscious mental processes along with film semiotics, analysis of narrative devices and cinematic history, to explore the reworking of myth and fairytale in Burtonâs gothic fantasy world.

It will also be of great help to those fans of Tim Burton who have been searching for a profound academic analysis of his works.
