The Literature of Terror : The Gothic Tradition Paperback
by David Punter
The first edition was regarded as the definitive survey of Gothic and related terror writing in English.
No other text considers this genre on such a scale and covers the theoretical perspectives so comprehensively.
In the latest edition, the broad range of theoretical perspectives has been enlarged to include modern critical theories.
Volume One is a thoroughly updated edition of the original text, covering the period from 1765 up to the Edwardian age, exploring the richness and literary diversity of the gothic form: from the original eighteenth-century gothic of Ann Radcliffe to the melodramatic fiction of Wilkie Collins.
