As I shared in my lecture, the literature scholars Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar identify rage as the feeling core of madness. Of course, there are madmen as well as madwomen, and The Wolfman (2010) explores male rage. Fairytale and monster stories of all kinds can be read as explorations of the human psyche and, by looking at Wolfman in this way, we can appreciate the film's speculations about men, women, and rage.
