The Gothic World, Hardback Book


The Gothic World offers an overview of this popular field whilst also extending critical debate in exciting new directions such as film, politics, fashion, architecture, fine art and cyberculture.

Structured around the principles of time, space and practice, and including a detailed general introduction, the five sections look at:Gothic HistoriesGothic SpacesGothic Readers and WritersGothic SpectacleContemporary Impulses. The Gothic World seeks to account for the Gothic as a multi-faceted, multi-dimensional force, as a style, an aesthetic experience and a mode of cultural expression that traverses genres, forms, media, disciplines and national boundaries and creates, indeed, its own `World'.
