The Cambridge Companion to Gothic Fiction (Cambridge Companions to Literature) by Jerrold E. Hogle

Review
'... if you want to brush up on your origins and expand your literary knowledge or just want something new to think about [this is] a good place to start.' Bite Me

Review
"Contributors also emphasize that the 'gothic' novel was not strictly English, but that it had many more outreaches. Although some essays include considerable political theorizing, the language does not overwhelm.... Recommended." Choice

Product Description
Fourteen world-class experts on the Gothic provide thorough accounts of this haunting-to-horrifying genre from the 1760s to the end of the twentieth century. Essays explore the connections of Gothic fictions to political and industrial revolutions, the realistic novel, the theater, Romantic and post-Romantic poetry, nationalism and racism from Europe to America, colonized and post-colonial populations, the rise of film, the struggles between "high" and "popular" culture, and changing attitudes towards human identity, life and death, sanity and madness. The volume also includes a chronology and guides to further reading.
