The York Notes Companion to Gothic Literature explores the genre from its origins in Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto, through Romantic and Victorian Gothic to modernist and postmodernist re-imaginings of the form, analysing key debates such as Female Gothic and the Gothic narrator. Examining classic works, including The Mysteries of Udolpho and Frankenstein, alongside literature much newer to the canon, the Companion offers close analysis of texts, and guides students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of Gothic literature.

About the author: Sue Chaplin is a Senior Lecturer in English, and Course Leader for the BA in English and History at Leeds Metropolitan University.
