Synopsis: The Gothic Tradition in Fiction uncovers the impulse behind Gothic literature -- the need to embody in the figures and settings of fantasy the nightmares shared by authors and readers alike. Elizabeth MacAndrew explores the intuitions of evil which have been transformed by literature into ghosts and monsters, as well as more sophisticated apparitions, from Horace Walpole's 18th century The Castle of Otranto to the present.
