Postfeminist Gothic explores new critical ground by addressing the intersection of two much debated and contentious concepts, postfeminism and Gothic. This edited collection of original and exciting essays examines a number of Gothic texts, from Anne Radcliffe's romances to modern horror films, in conjunction with diverse postfeminist theories, from backlash to postmodern feminism. The volume provides innovative criticism and analysis that makes a valuable contribution to the fields of literature, film, gender and cultural studies.
