The essays in this book explore some of the most significant current issues concerning the terrain of the Gothic and the Gothic perspective, offering a variety of possible answers to the crucial question: what is Gothic? The collection begins by addressing general issues about the location and structure of Gothic; this is followed by various considerations of Gothic as a specific historical phenomenon, linked with specific aspects of British, American, and European society; and, finally, by an exploration of Gothic writing during recent decades.
