Spanish Gothic : National Identity, Collaboration and Cultural Adaptation, Hardback Book

Spanish Gothic : National Identity, Collaboration and Cultural Adaptation Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Gothic series


This book presents the first English introduction to the broad history of the Gothic mode in Spain.

It focuses on key literary periods, such as Romanticism, the fin-de-siecle, spiritualist writings of the early-twentieth century, and the cinematic and literary booms of the 1970s and 2000s.

With illustrative case studies, Aldana Reyes demonstrates how the Gothic mode has been a permanent yet ever-shifting fixture of the literary and cinematic landscape of Spain since the late-eighteenth century.

He proposes that writers and filmmakers alike welcomed the Gothic as a liberating and transgressive artistic language.
