    One thought on “A Companion to the Gothic”

    1. Another all-inclusive guide to all things Gothic fictional. Goes into the subject a little deeper than the other few books I've read. Possibly dry reading to anyone only peripherally interested.

    2. This book covers a LOT of aspects of the Gothic and I can see it making a good textbook for a uni course on the subject. Because it's so extensive, it is a bit overwhelming as a cover-to-cover read. A good resource, though.

    3. This volume claims to be a standard reference book for students of the Gothic, and that's what it really is. The selection of essays is varied and well-balanced, and it answers very much all questions that a beginning (or advanced) researcher in the field might ask.
