List of Contributors Preface to the Revised Edition Introduction to the First Edition Writers of Gothic Gothic Terms, Themes, Concepts and Contexts Gothic Locations Selected Further Reading Websites on the Gothic Gothic Film - A Select Filmography Index
What do we mean by 'The Gothic'? How was it seeded? Where is it located? Why is it frequently characterised by the breaching of boundaries and the play of transgression and taboo? This revised handbook will explore these questions and many more through over one hundred multi-authored entries by nearly eighty leading scholars. Sections in the book are devoted to major and minor Gothic writers, 'Gothic Themes, terms, concepts and contexts' and to 'Gothic Locations'. Developments in the field, which have taken place since the pioneering The Handbook to Gothic Literature first appeared over a decade ago, have led to this new edition. New entries are included on nine authors, as well as on areas such as children's literature, comedy, music and medicine. There is also an expanded list of further reading, a new Gothic filmography and a list of Gothicised websites. This authoritative and accessible handbook continues to explore, through a diverse, comprehensive and yet eclectic mix of topics, the perennial concerns of the Gothic. This handbook will be an invaluable servant to all lovers of the Gothic. An accessible and indispensable guide to the Gothic containing over one hundred entries by nearly eighty leading scholars on Gothic writers, locations, themes, terms, concepts and contexts
