Product Description


'Not just another handbook, this volume will be of great benefit to those interested in literary Gothicism...Mulvey-Roberts deserves congratulations for magisterial editing...A must for all types of libraries.' - B.F. Fisher, Choice
'This Handbook…admirably fills what has until now been a notable gap in Gothic studies…The handbook allows the student to get both a sense of the big picture…but also to find more detailed information about many of the authors or terms mentioned in the overviews by looking up the more specific entries.' – Glennis Byron, Romanticism on the Net

'…an extremely useful reference work and introduction for students of the Gothic.' – Martin H. Brown, BARS Bulletin and Review

'…a necessary addition for even the specialist's library. No other single reference volume covers such a broad range of Gothic-related materials or draws upon such a wealth of scholarship. It is sure to become a reference Bible for Gothic students and established scholars alike.' – Carol Margaret Davison, Science Fiction Studies

'...informative and accessible, an "invaluable servant" that is able to instruct scholars while tempting new readers to think harder and deeper about horror stories and gothic romances.' - Reference Reviews

Book Description

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
