The Gothic Tradition provides a very good starting point for anyone studying this area of Literature. It provides synopses of the historical revival of the Gothic tradition and the early manifestations of 'Gothic' in literature, art and architecture. There are some excellent exercises which will help the student develop a better understanding of Gothic literature, including extracts from various 'Gothic' novels which could be compared etc. The book also provides an extensive suggested reading list for further investigation which is very useful.
An excellent beginning indeed.

Really informative and to the point, with great quotes from critics and good analysis. The section on Marxist, feminist and Freudian perspectives where they were applied to Frankenstein was especially useful.

This book has been tailored to the OCR GCE English Literature course, specifically Unit 2718, which gives Gothic texts such as 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' and various poems for analysis and requires a thorough understanding of The Gothic. This text gives a solid introduction to the aspects of Gothic language, context, structure and style that the exam addresses, and has a raft of extracts and ideas for study. Essential for OCR students and pretty useful for anyone approaching The Gothic from GCSE to Degree level. This website offers the text at a competitive price too.

This is a well structured book that provides a good introduction to the study of the Gothic. It's accesible to A Level students - not written in academese! - and provides some good (albeit breif) analysis of certain key gothic texts such as Frankenstein. Sometimes it can be a bit random - there's a whole paragraph on gothic music - but generally it is focused on key gothic themees. A good companion for anybody starting to study Gothicism.

I can't add many details because I didn't have time to read it. I can just say that it arrived in a good condition and in a short time.
