It analyzes both the treatment of violence and the metafictional discourses that the body of films develops on the topic. Despite the director’s claims in early interviews, the movies reveal an awareness of how sensitive and complex it is: violence is a core feature of the films not so much by token of its presence, but because it is the point where the aesthetics, ethics and politics of the films converge—this explains why discussions of violence inevitably crop up in each chapter, as in writings on Tarantino in general.
