Book Cover
A New Companion to the Gothic

Now thoroughly expanded and updated, this widely acclaimed Companion provides a series of stimulating insights into Gothic writing, its history, and its genealogy. The volume offers comprehensive coverage of criticism of the Gothic and of the various theoretical approaches it has inspired and spawned.

This new edition now contains twelve brand new essays; six of these constitute an additional part on “The Globalization of Gothic,” which provides an invaluable reflection on the direction Gothic criticism has taken over the last decade. The additional six contributions cover the topics of Gothic Shakespeare, the Gothic ballad, the Gothic sublime, Gothic and the graphic novel, Goth culture, and the Gothic and hospitality. Original essays have, where necessary, been revised and updated to reflect the very latest debates in the discipline. The volume begins with a substantial introduction, individual chapters feature lists of primary and secondary bibliographic materials, and the essays are written by leading scholars in the field.

David Punter is widely recognized as the founder of modern criticism of the Gothic, and is therefore ideally placed to edit what has become the standard reference work for scholars and students of Gothic.
