Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dexter Discussion (Reading)

Instructions

1. Schmid asks why the murderabilia industry has begun to sell the personal effects of real serial killers as if they were religious icons. What is Schmid`s argument, and what is your own theory? Why would we want to own a part of murder history? How does this relate to the merchandise being sold surrounding Dexter?

2. Schmid discusses the differences between "good" fame and "bad" fame on p. 12 of this chapter. How does this definition apply to Dexter and our strange admiration for his public service?  The question assumes readers and viewers admire Dexter.  This is probably a false assumption even among some of us in this class.
