I read this for its Chapter on 'Gender and the Gothic' which offered exactly what I was after: a clear and comprehensive overview of the most relevant and representative texts on this topic. Angela Wright presents and appraises the key criticism surrounding Gothic fiction in a way that is highly accessible, with plenty of her own insight into the nature of the genre and its appeal. An invaluable aid!

I've had a correspondence with Dr. Wright which is what prompted me to buy her book on gothic fiction. It's fantastic especially in a survey course or a course dedicated to gothic fiction. Her interests are very close to mine which made this book even more of a treasure-trove for me! If I ever have the chance to use this in a classroom I wouldn't hesitate. I highly recommend it!
