Product Description

Review

"The obvious value of ... A Companion to the Gothic is its wealthof critical approaches from good, old–fashioned "history ofideas" readings to the most sophisticated of recent theory."( Romanticism on the Net, November 2000)

"Anyone lucky enough to have this volume sitting on theirshelves has instant access to the recent thinking of a long list ofscholars who have led the way in Gothic studies. The book is averitable Baedecker′s guide that ranges from the historical Gothsof the third century to Stephen King in the twentieth century; thatexplores dimensions of Gothic through painting and cinema, as wellas written texts; that roams across Europe and America as well asthe British Isles. Punter himself contributes a concise butstimulating introduction." (Studies in Hogg and HisWorld)

"The individual essays are narrow enough to describe discretetopics but useful to newcomer and scolar alike." "Punter′s volumeis sure to be a standard reference for some time to come forundergraduates and scholars." (Choice)

"The book does not offer a house view of what Gothic is, butinstead faithfully reproduces the status of current debates on therelevant genres. Many essays provide useful summaries of criticismor of primary texts; others offer new critical insights." (TimesHigher Education Supplement)

"Without foreclosing interpretative possibilities ... ACompanion to the Gothic offers a range of strategies forunderstanding the genre, and is an excellent resource for students,teachers, and scholars of the Gothic." (Gothic Studies)
