It's been touched at elsewhere, but I found a book with new stuff.

http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/amk/doc/0052.html

That link discusses how the Shining is really about the slaughter of Native Americans.

The Wolf at the Door
This book talks about how the Shining is about the Holocaust. I haven't read it, but I find that notion very interesting. Has anyone read it or anything similar?

Could The Shining just be about genocide in general?
WWPTAD?

the native american theory is interesting but i suspect we'll never know if there's any truth to it.
