Currently, we only have content from Salem Press for this title, and not full enotes. We will take your request into consideration. If you have specific questions about the title, please feel free to ask them here.

There are no eNotes on this book; however, there is some information about it on this eNotes website through Magill's Book Reviews and Literary Analysis.  Here are two links for you:

I read this book in my graduate Gothic Literature class and loved it!  It is a disturbing, but highly interesting, tale of a couple who believes their son is the anti-Christ. 

I also found this high school teaching plan on the Internet:

No, I don't have notes at the moment. But they will soon come out, as I am writing an essay on the fifth Child for the Ellipses edition. It should come out at the beginning of October The collection is "L'Anglais à l'oral Classe de Terminale L"
