The Gothic Résumé

The Gothic David Punter

This guide provides an overview of the most significant issues and debates in Gothic studies. It explains the origins and development of the term Gothic; explores the evolution of the Gothic in both literary and non-literary forms, including art, architecture and film; features authoritative readings of key works, ranging from Horace Walpole's "The Castle of Otranto" to Bret Easton Ellis' "American Psycho"; considers recurrent concerns of the Gothic such as persecution and paranoia, key motifs such as the haunted castle, and figures such as the vampire and the monster; and, includes a chronology of key Gothic texts, including fiction and film from the 1760s to the present day, and a comprehensive bibliography.

The Gothic Avis

"The overall result is wonderfully informative and suggestive for the beginning student, while offering some striking additional insights spread across the book for advanced students of Gothic who have yet to consider such contexts for it as postcolonialism, 'goth' subcultures and 'Hallucination and the Narcotic'."
