Queer Others in Victorian Gothic : Transgressing Monstrosity Paperback / softback

Description

Queer Others in Victorian Gothic: Transgressing Monstrosity explores the intersections of Gothic, cultural, gender, queer, socio-economic and postcolonial theories in nineteenth-century British representations of sexuality, gender, class and race.

From mid-century authors like Wilkie Collins and Elizabeth Gaskell to fin-de-siecle writers such as J.

Sheridan Le Fanu, Florence Marryat and Vernon Lee, this study examines the ways that these Victorian writers utilized gothic horror as a proverbial 'safe space' in which to grapple with taboo social and cultural issues.

This work simultaneously explores our current assumptions about a Victorian culture that was monolithic in its disdain for those who were 'other'.
