The phenomena of ghost are very controversial, and people have been fascinated with the idea of ghosts. Thanatology is the field of science which deals with the study of death, and research done in this field has broadened the understanding of death and ghosts. It is believed that people wanted their dead beloved to return from the world of the dead because of emotional attachments, and hence, the concept of ghosts emerged where the dead returns as a ghost. This paper will attempt to analyse Elizabeth Bowen's story 'The Demon Lover' in two contrasting ways: First, as s ghost story, and then not a ghost story, but as a literary device for something else other than and more than ghosts.
