Product Description

Review

"Anyone lucky enough to have this volume sitting on their shelves has instant access to the recent thinking of a long list of scholars who have led the way in Gothic studies. The book is a veritable Baedecker's guide that ranges from the historical Goths of the third century to Stephen King in the twentieth century; that explores dimensions of Gothic through painting and cinema, as well as written texts; that roams across Europe and America as well as the British Isles. Punter himself contributes a concise but stimulating introduction." Studies in Hogg and His World

"The individual essays are narrow enough to describe discrete topics but useful to newcomer and scolar alike." "Punter's volume is sure to be a standard reference for some time to come for undergraduates and scholars." Choice

"The book does not offer a house view of what Gothic is, but instead faithfully reproduces the status of current debates on the relevant genres. Many essays provide useful summaries of criticism or of primary texts; others offer new critical insights." Times Higher Education Supplement

"Without foreclosing interpretative possibilities ... A Companion to the Gothic offers a range of strategies for understanding the genre, and is an excellent resource for students, teachers, and scholars of the Gothic." Gothic Studies
