Editorial Reviews

"Easily meeting the high standards that Gothic studies from Palgrave Macmillan have been setting in recent years, the main result is thus a readable, compelling, and useful contribution to Gothic studies generally and to the history of the American Gothic in particular."--NBOL-19“Poe, ‘The House of Usher,’ and the American Gothic is a welcome addition to the scholarly canons of Poe, the other writers included in their study, and the tradition of the American Gothic.”--Tony Magistrale, Professor and Associate Chair of English, University of Vermont
