From the Back Cover:

The chilling creativity of the American Gothic has retained itspower to attract readers since it burst onto the literary scene inthe eighteenth century, yet it has been the object of seriousscholarship for only a few decades. Edited by a founding member ofthe International Gothic Association, the new edition of thisanthology incorporates the whole range of factual and imaginativewriting, from Cotton Mather’s account of the witchcrafttrials in the colonial era, through the poetry of Poe, Dickinson,and Longfellow and unsettling tales both long (Henry James’sThe Turn of the Screw)and short (the anonymous“Talking Bones”), to the beginning of modernism in thetwentieth century.

The collection demonstrates the startling abundance of themesexplored by these writers and reflects contemporary academicperspectives, with generous selections from genres such as feministand “wilderness” Gothic. This new edition benefits frommore than ten years of suggestions from readers and teachers whilestill offering prose and poetry from luminaries such as NathanielHawthorne, Herman Melville, Henry James, Stephen Crane, JackLondon, and Edith Wharton. It includes recently unearthed as wellas canonical material and provides an unflinching view ofAmerica’s secrets and fears: the thoughts that have beenrepressed, silenced, or forbidden. All editorial materials havebeen revised for this new edition, which includes brand-newselections such as the captivity narrative of Hannah Dustan,Madeline Yale Wynne’s “The Little Room,”Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The YellowWallpaper,” and H. P. Lovecraft’s “TheOutsider.”
