From the Publisher
"Gothic Forms of Feminine Fiction" is a study of the powers of Gothic in late twentieth-century fiction and film. Susanne Becker argues that the Gothic, two hundred years after it emerged, exhibits unchanged vitality in our media age. Today’ s globalized entertainment culture, relying on daily soaps, confession shows and media icons like Princess Diana, is reflected in the emotional trajectory of the Gothic’ s violence, eroticism and sentimental excess.
