American Gothic Culture : An Edinburgh Companion, Hardback Book

American Gothic Culture : An Edinburgh Companion Hardback

Part of the Edinburgh East Asian Studies series


This new Companion surveys the traditions and conventions of the dark side of American culture - its repressed memories, its anxieties and panics, its fears and horrors, its obsessions and paranoias.

Featuring new critical essays by established and emerging academics from a range of national backgrounds, this collection offers new discussions and analyses of canonical and lesser-known texts in literature and film, television, photography, and video games.

Its scope ranges from the earliest manifestations of American Gothic traditions in frontier narratives and colonial myths, to its recent responses to contemporary global events.
