Goth Summary

Goth by Emma Baxter-Wright

With a long history stretching over hundreds of years of evolution, gothic encompasses a distinctive visual aesthetic that is fertile ground for endless imaginative reinvention. In Goth, the dark heart of this ever-adaptable subculture is explored in all its many manifestations, including ecclesiastical architecture, contemporary art, cult fiction, spine-tingling cinema, nihilistic rock music and funereal fashions. From seminal gothic novels and films like Frankenstein and Dracula to the music of Bauhaus and The Cure, through the gloomy meanderings of Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft to the current goth scene, this comprehensive book covers the richly complex genre in all its unearthly glory.
