Gothic Machine : Textualities, Pre-cinematic Media and Film in Popular Visual Culture, 1670-1910 Hardback

Description

This book reveals some of the exciting inter-relations between Gothic Horror literature, film and magic lantern shows.

It is an innovative work, providing new insights into how Gothic Horror as a whole started, with the genesis of the Frankenstein films, and encourages the reader to think of the relations between such books and films as one vibrant set of energies.

It examines the connection between Gothic and film studies and the media.

Jones provides a useful referencing tool for academic departments and explores the advent of film in the 1890's and its relation to French Symbolist literature, and the Lumieres Brothers, as well as the link between Schiller, de Sade and Robertson's Fantasmagorie.
