about

To what extent did the Gothic haunt the nineteenth century? Victorian Gothic seeks to answer this question as it introduces the reader to a timely revision of notions of the Gothic in all its manifestations. The Gothic is found to haunt all aspects of Victorian literature and culture. Moreover, Victorian Gothic connects its disparate areas of research in returning repeatedly to the question of the constitution of the subject, in a study of the Victorians from the 1830s to the 1890s.
Ruth Robbins teaches at the University of Luron. Julian Wolfreys teaches at the University of Southern California.
