This book argues that Gothic writing of the Romantic period is queer. Using a variety of texts, it argues that contemporary queer theory can help us to read the obliqueness and invisibility of same-sex desire in a culture of vigilance. Fincher shows how the Gothic's ambivalent gender politics destabilize heteronormative narratives.
MAX FINCHER gained his PhD from King's College London, UK, where he taught on women's writing and the Gothic. He has written articles and reviews on Gothic and queer studies forGothic Studies,Film Quarterlyand theTimes Literary Supplement. His research interests are in the history of sexuality, queer studies and Romanticism.
