DERYA KOLSDAL ELA LOZINSKI AMERICAN LITERARY EXPERIENCE 15 FEBRUARY 1999 IT Stephen King is the author of more than thirty worldwide bestseller. Much of his work has made its way to movie and television screens around the world. Stephen King lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, the novelist Tabitha King. He refuses to go into the cellar of his home, having come to believe that a velociraptor is waiting for him under the stairs by the fusebox with its eyes gleaming and its nasty little claws outstretched. The reason he writes horror, Ive always written horror..because its a kind of psychological protection. Its like drawing a magic circle around myself and my family.
My mother always used to say,If you think the worst, it cant come true I know thats only a superstition, but Ive always believed that if you think the very worst, then, no mattered things get (and in my heart Ive always been convince that they can get pretty bad), theyll never get as bad as that. If you write a novel where the bogeyman gets somebody elses children, maybe theyll never get your own children.. His full name is Stephen Edwing King ,he is marry with Tabitha Spruce, whom he met at the University of Maine at Orono.He has three childrens, Owen Phillip, Joseph Hillstrom and Naomi Rachel. When he was three, King’s merchant seaman father went to get a pack of cigarettes and was never seen again. Sometime in 1959/60 King discovered a box of science-fiction and horror books at an aunt’s house,and he start to write short stories.
Between 1971 and 1973 King taught English at Hampden Academy, living in a trailer and writing for magazines as an extra source of income.In 1973 he became a full-time writer, publishing Carrie. After several moves, he reached Bangor, Maine in 1980. In the words that grace so many of his books.. “He lives with his wife and their three children in Bangor, in Maine, his home state and the place where he feels he really belongs. His books often focus on evil and the result that fear imposes on people.
It deals with several children who have a bit of a trouble with a long-living entity who goes on a killing spree every 27 years.. They try desperately to kill it and think they succeeded as children.. as they are older they find out that the thing has returned.. and they must defeat it once again. They come back to Derry to destroy the evil (it). This time they manage to make absolutely sure that they kill IT.Finally they kill the IT.Well each of them leave Derry, and totally forgets anything that happened. IT was a kind of spider at the end of the story.
IT is related with Stephen Kings life, he had a lot of problems while on his child hood. He always wanted to forget the past and in story he made his characters to forget what happened.he cant forget the past and he wants to show himself that he can forget the bad thing if he really want to forget. On the beginning of the story he show the children like a bunch of losers, other kids dont like them ,they always mass around them. Also a lot of kid mass around him when he was a little alone kid,he wanted to make friends but no one did like him.he tell the hard thing for the characters weary well because he had the same experiences. In the story he tell us about his childhood under different names.
Stephen King believes medic, and he has a lot of fears.All most his all books he use magic ,he thinks that magic is exist.Once he said thatKids, fiction is the truth inside the lie, and the truth of this fiction is simple enough: the magic exists.In the story characters beat the IT with magik,he believes magic so it isnt hard to imagine that kind of unbelievable things.At the end of the story IT shows her self like an insect ,Stephen King fraids of spider and think that you are fraid of spider what do you use for fraytined things ofcaurse giant spider.He tell the gint spider perfectly because a spider is the most friytening thing for him. This was the book finally convinced me that Stephen King was a total genius (I almost read all of his books and this was the best of all).The book and the Stephen King life has many common things and he mixed things weary professionally.He puts the difficulties he had on the past and his biggest fear together and creates an incredible story.Amazingly prolific Stephen King ,pitting good against evil in the story ,thats the one different part from his life.The exciting and absorbing part of It are not the mechanical showdowns and shockeroos and certainly not the ideas but the simple scenes in which King evoke childhood in the 1950s.
