Gothic Transgressions: Extension and Commercialization of a Cultural Mode

Ellen Redling (Editor), Christian Schneider (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The articles in this volume discuss specific ways in which the Gothic transgresses boundaries, be they historical, spatial, national, aesthetic, generic, modal, medial or sexual. Offering a wide range in every respect - from `Proto' to `Post-Gothic', from mythical to digital, from national to `Globalgothic', from metropolitan to `EcoGothic', from traditional to `Candygothic', from novel to film and from Shakespeare to Steampunk - this collection aims to enrich as well as extend the scholarly debate on the Gothic as a multi-faceted mode of expression that goes beyond limits and, much like a vampire, constantly refreshes itself by feeding on the lifeblood of topical issues.
