Summary

Gothic literature covers a range of books and authors much wider than most people realize. From the origins of the movement in the 18th century to Charles Dickens to contemporary writers such as Stephen King, this A-to-Z guide to Gothic literature covers a vast array of works and writers from Britain, America, and other countries, as well as a variety of genres—novels, short stories, poetry, plays, and even a few influential films and works of art. The extensive Encyclopedia of Gothic Literature, Second Edition thoroughly examines this increasingly popular topic.

This new revised edition contains updates to all biographical entries on living authors, as well as updates to some of the appendices. 

Highlights include:

  • The emergence of Gothic writers in the late 18th century, with the works of Tobias Smollett and Ann Radcliffe
  • The movement's height in the 19th century, including Dracula and the works of Mary Shelley and the Brontë sisters
  • Contemporary Gothic writers, such as Anne Rice and Stephen King
  • Concepts and literary terms, such as claustrophobia, the Doppleganger motif, and melodrama
  • Famous settings, such as Castle Dracula, the House of Seven Gables, and Frankenstein's laboratory.
