From Anne Rice’s best-selling novels to our recurrent interest in vampires and the occult, the Gothic has an unyielding hold on our imagination. But what exactly does "Gothic" mean? How does it differ from "terror" or "horror," and where do its parameters lie? Through a wide range of brief essays written by leading scholars, The Handbook of the Gothic, second edition, provides a virtual encyclopedia of things Gothic. From the Demonic to the Uncanny, the Bronte sisters to Melville, this volume plots the characteristics of Gothic’s vastly different schools and manifestations, offering a comprehensive guide of Gothic writing and culture.

Among the many topics and figures discussed are: American Gothic, the Bronte Sisters, Angela Carter, the Demonic, Female Gothic, Ghost Stories, Film, Washington Irving, Henry James, H. P. Lovecraft, Madness, Herman Melville, Monstrosity, Orientalism, Post-Colonial Gothic, Anne Rice, Romanticism, Sado-Masochism, Bram Stoker, the Sublime, the Uncanny, Vampires, and Werewolves.

This revised edition of The Handbook of the Gothic contains over twenty new entries on Gothic writers such as Stephen King and Daphne Du Maurier, new genres such as African-American Gothic, new terms like Gothic Graphic Novel and Comic, and a new preface which situates the handbook within current studies of the Gothic.

About the Author:

Marie Mulvey-Roberts is reader in literary studies in the English department of the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. She is the author of Gothic Immortals: The Fiction of the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross and editor of many books, including Gothic Fiction: Rare Printed Works from the Sadleir-Black Collection.

Review:

“Not just another handbook, this volume will be of great benefit to those interested in literary Gothicism. . . . The editor has distinguished herself as a leading specialist in Gothicism, and her own entries . . . are predictably first-rate. Her contributors evince like authority; the ‘best’ have been chosen to present their topics.”
