This rich and varied collection of essays makes a timely contribution to critical debates about the Female Gothic, a popular but contested area of literary studies. The contributors revisit key Gothic themes - gender, race, the body, monstrosity, metaphor and motherhood - to open up new directions for criticism, while two essays on Scottish and Welsh Gothic represent the latest work in these new areas. Writers discussed range from central figures such as Ann Radcliffe, Charlotte BrontA", and Angela Carter, and neglected figures like the authors of the 'Northanger novels', to writers who are rarely discussed as 'Gothic' such as Iris Murdoch, Toni Morrison and Iain Banks. An Introduction surveying criticism on the Female Gothic and an essay on the institutionalisation of Gothic Studies provide invaluable contextualisation. Contributors: Kirsti Bohata, Carol Margaret Davison, Lauren Fitzgerald, Anya Heise-von der Lippe, Avril Horner, Alison Milbank, Robert Miles, Meredith Miller, Marie Mulvey-Roberts, Andrew Smith, Diana Wallace, Angela Wright, Sue Zlosnik.
