about

Anti-Semitism and British Gothic Literature examines the Gothic's engagement with the Jewish Question and British national identity over the course of a century.

What emerges is the elucidation of an anti-Semitic "spectropoetics" that conveys how the specters of Jewish difference and Jewish assimilation haunt British literature.
