The Literature of Terror : The Gothic Tradition, Paperback Book

The Literature of Terror : The Gothic Tradition Paperback


The first edition was regarded as the definitive survey of Gothic and related terror writing in English.

No other text considers this genre on such a scale and covers the theoretical perspectives so comprehensively.

In the latest edition, the broad range of theoretical perspectives has been enlarged to include modern critical theories.

Volume One is a thoroughly updated edition of the original text, covering the period from 1765 up to the Edwardian age, exploring the richness and literary diversity of the gothic form: from the original eighteenth-century gothic of Ann Radcliffe to the melodramatic fiction of Wilkie Collins.
